Most job information sites have a section on exactly what is involved in that specific job function. However, as this site is predominantly targeted at more experienced mechanics / vehicle technicians with a few years experience we will not be going into those details here.
If however you are a newcomer to the industry wanting more information on what the job entails, visit the National Careers site. Or if you are interested in knowing a bit more about the Australian market, visit their government website.
