Turn your passion into a career. If motorsport action gets you revved-up then Wintec’s Certificate in Motor Industry (Introductory Motorsport) (Level 3) is designed just for you. This Motorsport New Zealand supported programme is intended as the first stage of preparing you to work at a motor racing event or on a racing team. You will learn skills in motorsport, automotive engineering and automotive body repairs. When you complete your Certificate in Motor Industry (Introductory Motorsport) (Level 3) you will be able to work in a motorsport team or in the automotive industry. You will also have the skills required to begin an apprenticeship with an employer. After successfully completing this programme, if you do not wish to pursue a motorsport career you will be able to move into either the light-automotive, panel beating or engineering programmes currently offered by Wintec, whereby many of the unit standards achieved can be cross-credited. PROGRAMME CONTENT The Certificate in Motor Industry (Introductory Motorsport) (Level 3) incorporates a range of motor industry domains such as engines, brakes, chassis, welding, tuning, working with composites, safety, motorsport rules, electrical, transmission, chassis fabrication, fabrication, panel beating and automotive trim. This programme runs five days per week. Monday to Thursday are spent in class, approximately 8.00am – 4.30pm. Friday is set aside for industry work experience and completion of projects.

There are two scholarships available from the Perry Foundation that will be awarded to the successful candidates towards their fees. CAREER OPPORTUNITIES The Certificate in Motorsport Industry (Introductory Motorsport) (Level 3) may lead to a career in the motorsport industry with the ability to start an apprenticeship in the panel beating or automotive trades.
