You can work as a service station attendant without formal qualifications. You will probably get some informal training on the job.
You can also become a service station attendant through a traineeship in Automotive Sales. Entry requirements may vary, but employers generally require Year 10. Ask your career adviser about the possibility of starting some of this training in school.
Once you are employed, you may be able to develop, and have recognised, additional skills under the Automotive Retail, Service and Repair Training Package that will expand your career opportunities within this industry.
Service station attendants work in metropolitan areas and in country towns. Part-time work is often available. Shiftwork may be required, as there is a trend in some high-traffic areas for longer service station operating hours.
It is possible for service station attendants to be promoted to the positions of senior attendant and service station manager. Competent employees who have the necessary start-up funds may progress to their own dealerships.
