Automotive

TCAT offers budding motor vehicle technicians the chance to learn their trade in one of the best facilities in the region.
The £3.5 million Automotive Centre includes three state-of-the-art specialist workshops, one of which is sound proofed for engine and chassis testing.

It also has the latest automated test lane for MOTs, a chassis dynamometer, engine testing and fault diagnostics, computerised four-wheel alignment and Snap-On tools and equipment.

You’ll benefit from working in real-life workshop conditions, and are taught by industry-trained professionals with a wide breadth of specialisms.

The centre also has strong links with major motor dealerships, and independent garages.

Vehicle fitting and maintenance courses are offered at all levels, taking students from basic theory and practical elements about engines, tyres, brakes, steering and suspension, right through to more advanced modules which work on hi-tech rigs and live vehicles to focus on the diagnosis of complex system faults. 

Did you know: There are more than 30 million vehicles on Britain’s roads – providing work for an army of skilled servicing and maintenance staff.
