Automotive Service Technician Apprenticeship
If you’re already working in the automotive industry, the Automotive Service Technician Apprenticeship program will give your career as a mechanic an added boost. Over the duration of this four-year apprenticeship, you’ll develop your confidence through a mix of on-the-job training, technical experience and theory.
You’ll spend 80 per cent of your time with a qualified service technician in the shop. For the remaining time, you’ll be in our classrooms and shops, learning from skilled instructors and training on the same industry-standard equipment you’ll use on the job. When you graduate, you’ll have the theory behind the mechanics and the hands-on experience employers look for.
