Hand Brake Turn - 7 Week Automotive Taster Course
The objective of the automotive taster course is to make people of all ages (particularly "at-risk" youth) ready to enter a workplace in the automotive industry. The course covers the areas of both basic mechanic work and panel beating. Learners have access to an actual workshop and are offered an experience that simulates a real workplace environment, all the while teaching them skills that are invaluable in the field and can improve lifestyle in general - not only the technical skills of the professions, but also interpersonal skills, and helping them understand and manage responsibilities.
