The MTA Institute of Technology (MIT) began as a small operation in 1975 to providing basic business training courses for its members. In 1997 with the deregulation of the vocational training market, MIT entered into vocational training of automotive traineeships and apprenticeships. Since that time we have grown to become the largest provider of automotive vocational training in Queensland.
Today, MIT has approx. 2000 automotive students enrolled each year across Queensland. Most of these students are apprentice motor mechanics, auto electricians and motorcycle mechanics.
MIT employs more than 30 trainers and educators who are based from Cairns to the Gold Coast as well as west to Toowoomba and Emerald with their key responsibility belonging to the development and training of the apprentices.
MIT is a preferred supplier to the Queensland State Government as an automotive training provider.
Funding for traineeships and apprenticeships is made available from the Department of Education and Training.
