MTA Institute welcomes international Daejeon students

Over the past four years the MTA Institute (MTAI) have had the great pleasure of welcoming international students from Daejeon, South Korea to the Sir Jack Brabham Automotive Centre of Excellence.

This year six students who are studying in Australia through Smart Education Training Australia (SETA); will take part in a seven week placement with MTAI which is part of a 12 week international program.

During the seven weeks the students, who all have a passion for the automotive industry, will complete a Certificate I in Automotive Vocational Preparation which consists of three weeks at the MTAI Centre of Excellence, three weeks work experience with Hyundai Keema at Mount Gravatt, and a final week back at the Institute.

Hyundai Keema, a long standing member of the Motor Trades Association of Queensland, is incredibly supportive of the international relationships MTAI has developed with the students from South Korea and provide an extremely valuable opportunity to complete work experience at their location on the southside of Brisbane.

Paul Kulpa, General Manager of MTAI said, “Our relationship with Hyundai Keema and their enthusiasm in teaching and educating our international students through this three week work experience placement is really beneficial for the Daejeon students.

“The fact that they have a chance to work in a busy and vibrant workshop will give them a genuine taste for the automotive industry and MTAI are thrilled to be able to facilitate this and complete the program by issuing the students with a Certificate I in Automotive Vocational Preparation. The MTA Institute has long been the RTO of choice for SETA’s Daejeon students due to the real world experiences offered through the placement.”
