The One Thing Electricians, Chefs, and Race Car Drivers Have in Common? #NISSMAP

Published by Auto Apprenticeships on

car sales employees standing in garageYou’d be hard-pressed to name three jobs that seem to have as little in common as an electrician, a chef, and a race car driver. But even though the work couldn’t be more different, these jobs share one important trait; they all require practical skills that can be gained through hands-on experience in the real working world, not just books, theory or classroom study.

Although not everyone interested in automotive careers will become a V8 supercar racing driver, a plethora of other opportunities abound not only in motorsport, but across Australia’s dynamic and growing automotive sector. Jobs including Heavy Vehicle Technician, Auto Electrical and Parts Integrity. Many people mistakenly think of skilled jobs as low-paying jobs with no opportunities for advancement. This couldn’t be further from the case. The reality is that today there is a huge variety of respectable, well-compensated, upwardly mobile careers that don’t require a traditional university education.

Mark D’Aversa from WPC’s Group recently caught up with Todd Kelly at the teams workshop. Todd is one of the most successful V8 supercars drivers in the championship, with 19 race wins, 28 podiums and a Bathurst 1000 victory under his belt.
