SERVICE TECHNIAN (COMMERCIAL VEHICLES)
What does a Service Technician do?
Working as a Service Technician is not about grease, overalls and back-street garages. The Service Technicians of today work for retailers, equipped with the latest technology, in pristine environments. As a Service Technician you would be responsible for carrying out routine maintenance, and basic repairs as well as identifying and reporting faults on vehicles. At a more advanced level you’ll learn more about complex faults and repair them using sophisticated diagnostic equipment. At a higher level, you could be dealing with the most complex automotive systems as well as leading the workshop and the teams within it. You could also choose to specialise in certain areas. Some examples include; infotainment, connectivity or supplementary restraint systems.
To be an extraordinary Service Technician apprentice, you will need the right qualifications to start you on your learner journey. For Volkswagen this is a minimum of GCSE (or equivalent) in English, Maths and Science Grade 9 - 4 (A - C). You’ll also need to demonstrate your passion and enthusiasm for the job; show that you are a good listener and be interested in technology as a tool to fix problems. An ideal candidate will also be service orientated, focussed on quality and a real team player. If you can meet these requirements and believe in the brand values of your potential new employer, you can stand out against the competition to become an extraordinary apprentice.
