Automotive Training


Fastrack assists you as a technician to go from good to great and come back to your own workshop brimming with appliable knowledge, it’s a great way to receive accelerated learning in diagnostics.

Over 2019 we will have 5 Fastrack block courses (see below). Each block course runs over 5 days and will cover two AECS training seminars (days 1-4) both theory and practical and day 5 will be a full day of practical in our workshop, at no cost to you.

Fastrack is held at AECS HQ in Hastings. Because you’ll be at our home, we will be offering aspects of our training that we can’t normally do, compared to training elsewhere. Also, you’ll get to see our latest projects and get an inside look.

Fastrack is an opportune time to advance your skill set and progress quickly through the AECS training pathway. If you'd like to talk to someone about Fastrack or require further information, please call 06 874 9077.
