Level 3 Diploma in Light Vehicle Service and Repair
Previous school: Abraham Darby School

I chose to come to SCG because they have the best motor vehicle facilities. All of my family are in the vehicle industry and my interest grew from there. It is an amazing course and I have learnt so much. It is hard work, but once you start putting the effort in, it gets easier.

I was on the part-time six week car maintenance course and enjoyed it so much that I decided to gain my Level 2 diploma. I think the course covers everything perfectly and I really like doing the electrics modules.
