The Motor Trades Association of Queensland (MTA Queensland) has launched a suite of training courses aimed at delivering skills in the area of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), in collaboration with ADAS Solutions Australia.
MTA Queensland said the series of non-accredited courses are the first of their kind in Australia for the automotive industry and will play an important role in developing pathways for new skill sets necessary to support the future evolution of the industry.
There are three courses, each exploring different features of ADAS.
The ADAS Awareness course is a one-day program aimed at people working in the automotive industry who require an overall understanding of ADAS and their importance in modern vehicles.
The ADAS Technician course is a two-day intensive program for automotive professionals with prior ADAS diagnostic experience, who are required to understand, diagnose and calibrate ADAS systems in light-vehicles.
The ADAS Vehicle Glass course is a one-day program aimed at automotive glazing specialists, who are seeking an understanding and awareness of ADAS front camera (windscreen) diagnostics and calibration.
Paul Kulpa, MTA Institute General Manager, said the training is essential to keep pace with modern car technology. “With ADAS becoming increasingly common and complex in modern vehicles, it is imperative that individuals working in the automotive industry are equipped with the necessary skills to install, maintain and repair such systems.
“MTA Queensland is proud to offer state-of-the-art training in an area of growing need for the industry and look forward to joining ADAS Solutions Australia in delivering the courses.”
Adrian Parkes, Director of ADAS Solutions Australia said the organisation is delighted to collaborate with MTA Queensland. The coming together of the two brands ensures a high quality, award winning training platform through which we can deliver our expert, technically competent training modules.”
The ADAS training courses will commence in early March 2021 at the Sir Jack Brabham Automotive Centre of Excellence, Eight Mile Plains. For more information and to register, visit www.mtaq.com.au/industry-training
