4WD Accessories Technician Course

A joint initiative of the 4WD Industry Council and Kangan Institute

The automotive industry is committed to attracting and retaining suitably skilled technicians. The 4WD Industry Council (4WDIC) has identified that a specialised 4WD training program will help to:

– Engage technicians through learning relevant, new skills

– Help employers by enhancing skills within their workforce and addressing well-documented skills shortages

– Produce well-rounded technicians needed for 4WD vehicles

– Provide a consistent program that can be used as a benchmark for skills assessment, which is underpinned by strong industry collaboration.

The 4WDIC has recognised that with a specialised 4WD training program we can maintain business productivity and efficiency, and create new career paths for technicians, now and into the future.

In an industry-first, the 4WDIC and Kangan Institute have joined forces to develop a program specifically for the 4WD aftermarket industry. With the joint experience of the 4WDIC and Kangan, the program will foster a passion for the aftermarket and feature a delivery methodology that compliments industry practices.

Kangan Institute and the 4WDIC have developed the 4WD Accessories Technician Course, to establish a broad set of skills appropriate for working in the 4WD accessories fitting environment. The course uses a blend of some mechanical units, accessory fitting and electrical units. It culminates in a Certificate II in Automotive Service Technology and attendees will benefit from attending additional ‘industry sessions’ specific to the 4WD modification and accessory industry as part of their training.

The launch of the pilot program for the 4WD Accessories Technician Course represents a huge step forward, establishing a benchmark qualification that recognises the entry-level skills required to work in the 4WD industry. It also creates a pathway for further education for those students who wish to beyond the Certificate II.
