Australians are passionate about their cars. There are over 17 million cars and motorcycles registered in Australia. And they all need to be serviced and repaired.

The automotive industry is on the road to a greener future and technological innovation will be a key feature as cars evolve to meet the needs of a low carbon economy.

The demand for highly skilled technicians in all areas of the industry will grow as the government subsidises the long anticipated green-car revolution.
