A Career As An Automotive Technician

Hello everybody!

today at school we saw this video. After a Before watching activity LINK HERE I gave a While Watching activity (a chart to be filled in) to my students. It was particularly interesting, mainly the “strange” English accent, which we found out comes from New Zealand. However, the content was extremely stimulating, because it talks about the paths that lead to become an automotive technician in New Zealand, and the fact that this is a really required job all over the world.

And now an After Watching activity!

  1. Today at school we watched a video who talkS about a career as an automotive technician.
    Jack Tomlin,17 years old, is a keen car enthusiast and he wantS to see how the mechanic job IS.
    First, before going to workshop he haS to read the safety rules.
    Then with zack , a mechanic who works in this warehouse of repairs, HE can go inTO the workshop for working with
    the latest developments machine, HYBRID CAR.
    Good communications skills are big important for this job.
    In the hybrid car they switch the SPARK PLUG.
    then with a special tester who can communicaTES with the mother pc of the car
    they see another problem “intake air temperature circuit high input”.
    So they go to the pc and they read the instructions TO solve this.
    ONCE this is DONE, they go to the road FOR A test.
    At that point ,when the car has no more problems, they have to go to the assistance
     who tell them how they switch the car ON.
    JACK seeS himself in this future job, and he wantS to learn more about it.
    for automotive technician:
    you will need to complete a National certificate in Mechanical and Electrical industry level 3 or 4.
    you have to understand good maths, electronic, mechanic and computers.
    In new Zeeland this is a type of work WHERE YOU have to study a lot.

  3. Today at school we watched a video about a young guy, Jack, who worked like automotive technician for a day. At the beginning we saw a short introduction where Zack, a mechanic, showed what is important to be a good worker in a workshop. The video is set in New Zealand, in a Toyota workshop/car showroom, where Zack tAUGHT some of THE basic things to know about A car, like changING a spark plug or checkING the electric system. In the end watching this kind of video can be really useful, because IT SHOWS us what is really important to know to be A good mechanic when we are going to finish school.

  4. At school we watched a short video of 8 minutes about the skills and the knowledge TO become aN automotive technician. This video is divided in several parts that explain very well (for me) the abilities and other things of an automotive technician, it took pLACE in New Zealand. Here a boy called Jack Tomlin is going to start the apprenticeship in a Toyota workshop, in the video he repairs an automobile with Zack Dredge, his “mentor” during all the experience. This video is so interesting because on the one hand, you can see if this is the job for you, and it shows a few abilities and technique of a good mechanic. On the other there are lots of other skills that it didn’t mention and the economic system wants today (for example a good reparation in a very short period of time). All in all, I really likeD the video, IT Is interesting to see what IT is required for the job that some of us will do after finishing the secondary school (and maybe the university).

  6. ON Friday at school we watched a short video about Jack tomin, he is 17 years old. He wants to be aN automotive technician. His tutor is Zack. It took place in New Zealand in a workshop. In the video we saw that they fixed a hybrid car, it is a “horrible car” because it has 2 engines: one electrical and one combustion engine. To be an automotive technician you need a national certificate to repair car.
    All in all,the automotive technician is a job for jack, not for me. In the future I would consider to become a sub WELDER.

  8. Today at school we watched a short video about a guy that is in a workshop for understand if mechanic is his job. The video is divided in three parts. We saw the first and the third part.
    At the beginning we saw a workshop It took place in New Zeland It was really interesting to notice how they speaking English and the organization of the workshop.

    Then After some time Jack and Zack start worked on the car and and solve the problems of their costumer.

    So At that point when they finished to fixed up the car they returned to the costumer.

    He explained that to become an automotive technician in NZ you need some certification and also They told that at school it is important to be good at math, electronic, English and mechanical subjects. To be honest I think English it’s so important to become a automotive mechanic in the other country.

    I really liked like the video because I found it extremely stimulating how is the job out of school.

    In the future I would consider to become a barman.

  13. Last WEEK at school we watched a short video about a 17 year-old guy who wants to undertake the automotive technincian career. Our teacher presented to us this video. At the beginning we saw Zack going to the rutherford and bond toyota. Here Zack spoke with jack, who would teach Zack to be an automotive tecnician. in fact he taught him the basics of that work and he told him that at school IT is important to be good at all the subjects. All in all I think this video was interesting for the message. In fact it invites to prove, for example with the INTERNSHIP, what kind of JOB is for you.

  14. Last lessson, at school, we watched a short video about a guy, Jack, that he was going to live a day as an automotive technician.
    The video i divided in 2 parts:
    In the first part we watched that Jack was educated on the health and safety briefing and what Zack expect from an automotive technician, for example:
    Have a good comunication with the customers, to be able to solve problems and to be able to do jobs like repairs, plumbing jobs and electrical jobs.
    After that we watched the car where they were work, a Toyota Prius, a car that it is considered an horrible car because it is an hybrid.
    An hybrid car is a car that have two engines:
    One is a mechanical engine while the other is an electric engine.
    In the second part we watched if this is a job for Jack, and it is, and we watched what do you need to became an automotive technician in New Zeland and what subjects you should be good at school.
    Then, to become an automotive technician in New Zeland you need a National certificate and you shold be good in Math, Mechanics, Electronics and Computer.
    To be honest I think this is a good job and I liked the video because, here, you can find important information and it is really interesting.

  15. Today at school we watched a short video about a career as an automotive Technician.
    Our teacher was beginning to tell us about some informations about this video,
    like some words that we didn’t know and handed a chart with some questions.
    The video is divided in six parts.
    The fisrt part we saw the presentations of Jack, the aspirant automobile technician,
    then he met his tutor for a health and saftey breafing. After that they met the costumer and
    identified the problem of the car. After Jack and Zack moved in to the workshop and fixed up
    the machine. Finally they returned back the car to the costumer.
    Zack explained to Jack that to become an automotive Technician it is important to get good marks
    in maths mechanics, electronics and computers and also to undestrund and speack english.
    I don’t like this video so much because I don’t like mechanical subjects and motors.
    In the future I would consider to become a good electrician.
