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 get to work upon as part of their very hands on course with us.


Gaining practical knowledge and skills whilst applying them to gain New Zealand and 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 Centre Students go onto to rewarding careers (or higher education) in the Motor Industry.

New Zealand Certificate in Foundation Skills (Automotive Context) (Level 2)
National Certificate in Education Achievement (NCEA) (Level 2)
