Course overview

Course overview

Boost your career in the motorcycle service and repair industry with this entry-level course that will set you up with the mechanical skills you need to succeed. This course is an excellent starting point to gain experience and employment in the motorcycle industry. Motorcycling has regained popularity in recent years, with commuters choosing motorcycles over other forms of transport, and individuals taking up motorcycling as a leisure activity. As a result, demand for qualified service and repair technicians is solid.

This course covers the skills required to service and repair the mechanical parts of motorcycles such as the engine, fuel system, transmission, suspension system and braking system. You will learn diagnostic procedures to determine faults, and how to repair and service a variety of motorcycle parts including engines and engine components, cooling systems, clutch assemblies, braking, steering and suspension systems, and more. Our industry-experienced professionals will deliver this hands-on training in our world-class workshops equipped with the latest materials and technology.

Successful completion of this course will provide the technical knowledge and practical skills required to work as a motorcycle mechanic or technician. If completed as part of an apprenticeship, it will also allow you to apply for a trade qualification.
