Held at the Motor Industry Training Association in Joondalup, the competition had the best of WA’s automotive apprentices compete.

The 20-year-old is completing her Certificate III in automotive electrical technology.

‘It was my first competition and I didn’t really know what to expect, so I am really happy I placed,’ Andrea said.

‘This is proof that the hands-on training I received throughout my apprenticeship has given me the right skills and knowledge needed to succeed in the real world.’

Her skills and knowledge of batteries, starting motors, alternators, lights, wiring, semi-conductors devices, electrical components, and automotive sensors were put to the test.
