The final part of your Skills Assessment for Motor Mechanics is a technical Skype interview. Here you will be required to come to our London venue The Down Under Centre based conveniently next to Ealing Broadway underground station.

We will organise an Australian qualified Motor Mechanic who is also an Australian qualified trainer and assessor in to discuss your application with you and your everyday working life as a Motor Mechanic. Please note that if the assessor feels that you do not have the necessary skills to work in Australia as a qualified Motor Mechanic you will be asked to provide further information or complete a practical assessment/ site visit which will be at your cost. The Down Under Centre have never had a client that has required a site visit as yet as we work closely with them to ensure that this does not need to happen. The assessors understand that you may be nervous, they will discuss your application with you in a calm manner in a relaxed environment and do all they can to assist you and put you at ease.
