Introducing our Automotive Program

We continually update our content to meet NATEF standards.

This program has been designed to allow you to build a NATEF certified automotive program that will enable your students to become new hi-tech auto technicians.

A unique blend of online digital learning resources and practical equipment combines to create an automotive teaching program that will deliver the knowledge and practical skills students need to achieve success.

Our aim is to help you develop skilled technicians with a solid understanding of automotive technology and fault-finding techniques.

Automotive theory taught in a practical way… including:

Sectioned Components

Exposing the inner workings of components provides a safe and accessible way of viewing how complex systems are constructed – key components are color-coded for easy identification. Our cut-aways are fitted with hand cranks to enable students and teachers to see how components interact with each other to create a fully working system.

Autotronics Panel Trainers

Our innovative computer-linked panel trainers simulate a range of complex vehicle operations that can be used in a safe classroom environment. These trainers are lightweight, freestanding and are a great resource for front-of-class teaching and group activities.

Autotronics Boards

Our unique autotronics boards provide students with a practical approach to theoretical learning. Diagnostic and faultfinding skills can be developed from the safety of the classroom with these desktop systems… it’s just like the real thing!

System and Component Rigs

Many automotive technology concepts are best taught using fully functioning vehicle component rigs, where an instructor can show students a wide variety of diagnostic and maintenance techniques. Students are also able to perform tasks on systems without the need for a complete vehicle, which in some cases means practical tasks can also take place in the classroom.

"It’s totally different here, we’ve got computers and all these trainers. It’s an excellent way to learn and is much better than just reading books. We have our own laptops so I can go home and study, so when I come in here I can get 100%!"

- Alex Diaz, Automotive Student
