Ashton and Klyde - Suds Automotive

The RPL experience with Zak and MTA has been fantastic! I have been able to complete my trade certification in a very efficient way while running a busy workshop and managing multiple staff. I was able to collate and provide the necessary evidence for much of the course, with Zak delivering the remainder of content on our premises. The training material provided by MTA is exceptional, with a huge depth of information, all easily accessible online. The learning portal that manages the entire process is awesome with the ability to upload required documentation, see progress and track completions. The technical content is very very good – covering both the underlying principles for long-term application and also practical scenarios referencing up-to-date vehicles. This is a big advantage over many other courses that are not backed by such comprehensive resources. Zak has a great teaching style, making it easy to learn, with interesting real-world examples and challenges. He has provided a great combination of both on-the-tools (with a van full of components and parts to demonstrate on and troubleshoot) and classroom-based learning. I have really appreciated Zak’s dedication to to ensuring my full understanding of each subject, which isn’t always the case with many training providers. Completing this RPL with MTA has provided our business with an additional competency that will help us continue to grow, and also able to support new apprentices in the trade. Thank you to Zak, MTA and the team there.

Travis to MTAI Trainer Zak Zuiderduin

Just wanted to say another huge thank you for your advice, guidance and knowledge over the last four years of my apprenticeship. Your understanding of the trade makes for an awesome learning experience and although I lack a lot of motivation towards the theory work you’ve always found a way to work around that. Not only that, but your words of advice has had a huge impact on my professional and personal decisions, and I believe your perspective always comes from the right place; you’re a very respectable man to look up to.

I can definitely say I’m a better mechanic because of you and because of your teaching methods and the understanding you have towards your students.

Thank you again.

Student to MTAI Trainer

Just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the hard work, effort and time into my apprenticeship.

Thanks for taking your time with me on certain subjects and helping me through out the four years! I’m proud to have been trained by someone of your stature. I will continue to learn everyday and not let you down!! I hope we get to catch up again for a coffee and a chat soon. You are a great role model and hopefully some day I will know a tenth of what you know.

From day one I knew I was lucky to have a trainer like yourself I’m glad others will have the opportunity that I have been given.
Look forward to that coffee!!
Thanks Again 10/10 mate!!!

Student review

Jeff explains things very well and waits for everyone to catch up before moving on.

Suzie S (MTAI Apprentice) – Engines Course

I rang many RTO’s and MTA Institute was certainly the most professional, quickest to respond and easiest to deal with.

Rick Aleman

The Advanced Hybrid Course was just what I needed to be completely confident in repairing these cars.

Paul Tugwell (the trainer) answered all my questions & explained all the cars systems and procedures I required to be able to repair these cars and service them. The knowledge gained and the information I received from this course has given me the confidence to work on these cars.

–The biggest tool that I have taken from these training courses is knowing that Paul and the MTAQ team are only a phone call away and very willing to help; which gives us a great peace off mind.

Steve – Absolute Car Care

I am very appreciative of the time and effort that you have given me and my training and don’t think there is a way for me to thank you fully with the knowledge you have taught to me. Thank you so very much.

Murray (MTAI graduating apprentice) to Trainer

When I saw the Introductory Hybrid Course I decided to enroll and see what information I would gain.

I found this course simple and I will send my employees too this in the future. I walked away with simply but assuring knowledge off being able to work safely on these cars with confidence or general servicing on Hybrids and electric cars.

Steve – On Hybrid Introductory Course

Jeff is very experienced and hands on. He made learning quite easy and he is a top bloke. 5/5
