  • Objectives
    Today's qualified auto technician is highly skilled and in great demand. The technicians that industry demands must, among many other things, be able to diagnose and repair complex wiring systems, understand serial data communications, and perform professional quality repairs in an exciting and fast-paced environment. Students will start at "ground zero" with basic work safety and an introduction to fasteners and hand/pneumatic tool indentification and usage. Quickly, students move into a 50/50 split between "hands on" and classroom training in the following areas: steering suspension and brakes, drivetrains and engines. The Ministry and industry driven focus of the course is electrical and electronics, this will comprise 40% of all studies.
  • Practical experience
    Students looking for a challenge and practical in-shop training will enjoy working in a state-of-the-art lab on current vehicles. Emissions systems, automatic transmissions, ABS brakes, air conditioning, computer applications, scan tools, lab scopes and gas analyzers will be explored in depth.
