Hyundai Advanced Apprenticeship Academy
Creating the technicians of the future.
Hyundai’s commitment to quality does not end with our vehicles. We believe our people are integral to the strength of our business, and must be adequately skilled to provide expert after sales support. The education and training of our Hyundai Service technicians is the foundation of our Hyundai Service facility program. To become a Hyundai technician, you must first complete a four year apprenticeship Certificate III in Automotive Mechanical Technology light vehicle AUR30405. This is most commonly done through TAFE however HMCA is also a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) so like TAFE we are also able and licensed to deliver this Nationally Recognised qualification to our new Hyundai Service apprentices. Our training includes a strong focus on high-technology and vehicle diagnostics.
Factory trained technicians are the experts in the care and maintenance of the Hyundai range of vehicles. The Hyundai Advanced Apprentice Academy provides us with the opportunity to provide structured learning and development programs with strong focus on high-technology and vehicle diagnostics to our apprentices so we can create the expertly skilled technicians of the future. We select and nurture talented apprentices to ensure they develop high levels of knowledge and skills in an effort to provide our customers with a first class customer service experience.
The Hyundai Advanced Apprenticeship Academy was granted RTO status in May 2008 and commenced training for the NSW metropolitan and rural dealers in February 2009. We then expanded to Queensland in 2011 and are now running the program in Victoria with our group of 1st years commencing in February 2012. We currently have a total of 135 apprentices currently enrolled and anticipate extending the program into Perth in 2014.
The Hyundai Advanced Apprenticeship Academy provides many benefits to you, our customer, including; a higher standard of technician competency, advanced skills in the areas of service, repair and diagnosis leading to reduced vehicle off-road time which simply means more convenience. We’re also helping many young men and women develop a fantastic career with Hyundai.
