Course overview

The Advanced Vehicle Maintenance class is designed to give you essential knowledge and understanding of the motor vehicle engine. This is a 10-week evening class held at Edinburgh College’s Sighthill campus once a week. You will learn practical skills needed to complete tasks such as timing belt replacement and valve adjustment. 

During these evening classes, you will look at the diagnosis of faults that can occur in a motor vehicle engine using a variety of computerised diagnostic equipment. This class can be taken as a progression from the basic maintenance class offered at Edinburgh College as well as a stand-alone class for those with a good knowledge of motor vehicle maintenance looking to learn more about engine systems.

The course is taught by teachers with industry experience using the latest industry technologies.
