Dream Drag car project for Rockingham Automotive students

Published: March 30, 2022 7:47am

As part of our Institute of Training Certificate I in Automotive Vocational Preparation Course, students at Rockingham PCYC will now have the opportunity to build a drag car from the chassis up.

Rockingham PCYC Institute of Training operates a highly successful Automotive Course for young people that are disengaged from traditional school, providing an introductory qualification to automotive retail, service and repair industries or an entry to further training.

Throughout the year, each Auto I Course will work on different stages of the car. Participants will work together to develop a budget, vehicle design, acquire base parts and build different parts of the car.

Rockingham PCYC Centre Manager, Claire Gregory, said, “The drag car is exactly the type of project that excites students to take part in the auto course. The students will have such a strong sense of achievement when they use the skills they learn through the course on a real car.”

This project is made possible thanks to Youth Affairs Council of Western Australia's Grant Scheme, supported by Lotterywest.

To stay up-to-date with the different stages of the car throughout the year make sure you’re following Rockingham PCYC on Facebook!
