Vehicle Diagnostics and Management Principles -

Advanced, Level 4 Diploma

For motor vehicle diagnostic technicians who want to improve or prove competence of their knowledge and skills to diagnose and repair complex vehicle faults as well as using advanced communications skills to liaise with a diverse range of audiences and supervising others. This qualification is aimed at candidates who are progressing from Level 3 or those already working at Level 4 wishing to have recognition of their skills ahd knowledge.

The Level 4 enables learners to enhance their logical thinking skills. Learners completing a level 3 qualification in Vehicle Maintenance and Repair will already have some knowledge of diagnosing and fixing faults, however, higher level advanced diagnostic skills require not only technical skills but the ability to carry out logical, structured thinking, investigation processes and resolution skills. These skills only come from higher level fault finding independent experience and professional discussion with Master Technicians plus self-learning.

Students will benefit from years of academic and industrial expertise of highly qualified Motor Vehicle Lecturers and have access to various industry standard workshops where learners can demonstrate skills to diagnose faults and repair vehicles.
