Bid to Overhaul Automotive Skills to Meet Australia’s Electric Vehicle Demands


Australia is gearing up for a major shift in the automotive sector as it embraces battery electric vehicles (BEVs). The Australian Mining and Automotive Skills Alliance (AUSMASA) is leading the charge, calling for mechanics to upgrade their automotive skills to meet the new demands.

Addressing the Electric Vehicle Skills Gap

After thorough discussions with industry insiders and stakeholders, AUSMASA has identified a critical need. The rising popularity of BEVs has created a demand for technicians who can service a wide range of electric vehicles in the automotive and mining sectors.

This move highlights strides toward meeting Australia’s 2030 CO2 targets in the next decade, as it works towards a greener economy.

Who Needs to Upgrade Their Automotive Skills?

Mechanical Technology are now required to update their automotive skills to stay relevant in the field of battery electric plant competency.

This includes automotive electrical technicians, electric vehicle mechanics, light and heavy vehicle technologists, diesel fitters, mobile plant technicians, heavy vehicle mechanics, elevated work platform technicians, and forklift mechanics.

Automotive graduates are also being urged to prepare for this transition. They are expected to complete skillset upgrades, including AURSS00063 – Battery Electric Vehicle Diagnose and Repair Skill Set, and AURSS00064 – Battery Electric Vehicle Inspection and Servicing Skill Set.

Opportunity in the EV Boom

While this does show a current skills gap, those who complete the new skillsets will be leading the way in this rapidly evolving industry.

The introduction of Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) in Australia is still in its early stages. However, this transition offers a golden opportunity for Australia to establish itself as a leader in training automotive technicians as BEV technology continues to grow and evolve.
