Building upon the foundations of level 1, our Motor Vehicle Level 2 course nurtures you to have a deeper understanding of the theory and technology contained within a vehicle. You will learn the required skills to perform analysis and maintenance on engines and transmission.
In addition, the course covers electrical and chassis technologies all while working on cars in an environment very similar to the motor vehicle industry.
Our motor vehicle unit also has classroom facilities so that you can learn theory and apply it practically. On completion of the course, you will probably want to progress to Level 3 study.
This course will prepare you for work in the motor vehicle industry either through an apprenticeship or further study:
- Understand the theory and develop your technical skills within motor vehicle technology
- Gain ‘hands-on’ experience working with engines and car components
- Learn from experienced technicians to support your career progression
- Be able to progress to a level 3 or an apprenticeship
Level 2 Diploma
A recognised Level 1 qualification in Motor Vehicle Studies or similar. You will have a genuine interest in working with vehicles and in technology/mechanics.
This is a level 2 qualification and is the standardised course for assessment in service and repair. This course provides the knowledge requirements (technical certificate) for the Maintenance and Repair Apprenticeship framework (for light vehicle). It is broken down into five technical sections including the four main vehicle areas designated by the National Occupational Standards developed by IMI which include:
* Chassis Technology
* Engine Technology
* Transmission Technology
* Electrical and Electronic Technology
* General Aspects e.g. health and safety, legal aspects and organisational requirements.
It offers an ideal step for those who are employed, and wish to continue with their studies, as the knowledge at level 2 meets that required by the motor industry.
The course runs on a local industrial estate where we have an industry standard workshop and classrooms with IT, presentation and classroom facilities.
Assessment and exam information
The assessment of this course is made up of two components: IMI Awards set practical tasks and IMI Awards set online testing.
