The MTA Institute (MTAI) (RTO No. 31529) is the largest private provider of automotive apprenticeship training in Queensland. With over 1,600 apprentices and trainees state-wide, the Institute has developed a reputation for excellence, flexibility and professionalism.

Operating out of Brisbane headquarters, the Sir Jack Brabham Automotive Centre of Excellence is a $10million state-of-the-art facility equipped with the latest technology and training resources designed to offer students the skills and knowledge to navigate current and future industry trends.

MTAI offers convenient, flexible training plans designed to suit employers’ business operations. MTAI has over 30 highly skilled trainers throughout Queensland, who conduct one-on-one training at the employer’s workplace. This means individualised student/employer arrangements to get the best training results.

All learning materials are online allowing students access to important training resources, educational tools and support 24/7 from their smartphone or computer. This makes training engaging, easy and effective with tasks and assessments easily tracked through the online platform.
