Rebuilding a Skyline drift car through to the test drive, and turning an A4 Audi into a ute are just a couple of the projects that Regent Training Centre Automotive students have worked upon as part of their courses during 2014.


Gaining practical knowledge and skills whilst applying them to gain National Certificates is the key to this programme’s success. Students who struggled at school find that learning comes quite naturally in the workshop. Under the guidance of experienced and encouraging Tutors, Regent Training Students go onto to rewarding careers (or higher education) in the Motor Industry.
