Learn the basics of maintaining and repairing farm machinery
Dual Enrolment programmes are FREE if you're in Years 11, 12 or 13 and a great way to earn NCEA credits and get a feel for tertiary study, while you’re still at school.
This course covers a combination of basic automotive, engineering and welding skills to start you on the road to being confident in a general workshop.
During the course you'll get some experience on repair and maintenance on small engines and plant. You'll also learn to weld and grasp some basic engineering skills.
This programme is delivered one day per week (Thursdays 9:00am - 3:00pm).
*Places are limited and funding is dependent on availability. Some courses may incur costs, depending on the learner's eligibility.
NZQF credits in the table below are awarded to you on completion of this programme. These credits contribute to achieving your NCEA qualification.
