JAPANESE AUTOMOBILE QUALIFICATION

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

I hope to get an advice here . Currently I am studying Automobile in Japan. The vocational school qualification is called second class service engineered course. Duration is 2 years. After graduation I would like to work in japan for couple of years and. My dream is to work in Australia as a Automobile mechanic. So my question is do Japanese Automobile qualifications valid and recognized in Australia? 

Any ideas. 

Thank you.

You're unlikely to find the answer here.  The Aust government does have plenty of info on various websites regarding what overseas qualifications are accepted here and what are not.  Japanese qualifications stand a reasonable chance, so long as they align with the "quality" of the Australian ones.  Mechanics here are expected to do a 3 year apprenticeship.  That is 3 years at work with regular classwork at a college across that time.  Both the classwork and the workplace experience are required.  If your 2 year course is only classwork, it will not likely be accepted without also having real job experience.

But don't take my (possibly inaccurate) word for it.  Google to find the appropriate info from the Oz gov websites.

I would say your qualifications would be recognised but then you may have to do some additional apprenticeship work to get fully qualified by Australian standards.

It also depends on how specialised you will be, e.g will you become a general mechanic or some engine specialist.

Good luck with your studies.
