This program prepares students to work in the automotive industry with an emphasis on motor vehicle technology. Theory and practical training equip the student for challenging positions in a variety of careers.
The first semester is common to both the administration and technical streams, which allows the student time to choose which is right for them. Moving into second semester, the administration stream covers accounting, marketing and statistics, as they relate to the automotive industry; while the technical stream focuses on applied mechanics, vehicle dynamics, etc. providing a good understanding of component design.
As part of the curriculum, the student will be trained on automobile assemblies in fully-equipped automotive shops. Both streams provide the same vehicle technology and in-school content as the Automotive Service Technician (AST) apprenticeship qualification. This program prepares the student to enter the industry and be successful on exemption testing for licensing qualification.
