Auto Electrician Apprenticeship

Auto Electricians specialise in the electrical systems and components of all types of vehicles. You might expect an Auto Electrician to work only on passenger cars, but they can also work on trucks, farming vehicles, and construction vehicles among many others; they just need the appropriate training. At WesTrac, Auto Electricians are exposed to a wide variety of machinery within the mining and construction industry and this would include building, diagnosing and repairing the full range of Cat Fleet either in the workshop in Perth or FIFO from Perth. Residential roles are also available.
