The next generation of auto technicians at TAFE NSW Ultimo AutoCel
have taken delivery of two pre-production motor cycles from Kawasaki
to use as a training resource this week.
A special KRT Edition Ninja 400 ABS SE model, Ninja 250 Race Bike
(EX250) and a KVCS diagnostic tool was kindly donated by Kawasaki.
This will allow Certificate III in Motorcycle Mechanical Technology
apprentices the opportunity to put their classroom knowledge to use by
practicing their diagnostic skills on innovative Kawasaki technology.
TAFE NSW Motorcycle teacher Paul Sampieri said, “The Motorcycle
Mechanical Technology apprentices are thrilled to have this new
training resource available to them at TAFE NSW. Just as car
technology has improved over the past decade, so has two-wheeled
technology. Motorcycles are now being made with a number of
technological advancements, and it essential the next generation of
motorcycle apprentices have flexible and adaptable training focusing
on new and emerging technologies.”
