The Automotive technician ELTT (Foundation) program is an excellent way to start a career in the industry. I can't recommend it highly enough. The program covers everything from basic shop skills right up to the inner workings of the automobile. For me it was like unraveling a mystery. Moving from knowing what a component does, to understanding WHY it does that, and how to make sure it keeps doing what it should.

The hands on approach brought the classroom theory to life for me, and helped the information sink in. The balance of theory and practical learning was excellent, and having shop time structured like a proper working shop (which it is) was excellent. There was also the advantage of working on real customer cars, and not just props. You gain a sense of responsibility, and appreciation for the customer.

The instructors and assistants associated with the course have the real life experience and firsthand knowledge to make the learning experience a very good one, regardless of the student's prior abilities.

On top of all that, being able to leave the course as a level one apprentice makes job finding much easier. Even if a student were to choose another career, the knowledge gained would be of immeasurable help in years to come.
