Program Information

School:Centennial College

Field of Study:Automobile/Automotive Mechanics Technology/Technician
Description:This program prepares you to work in the automotive industry with an emphasis on motor vehicle technology. Theory and practical training equip you for challenging positions in a variety of careers. The first semester is common to both the administration and technical streams, which allows you time to choose which is right for you. The administration stream covers accounting, marketing and statistics, as they relate to the automotive industry. The technical stream focuses on applied mechanics, vehicle dynamics and properties of materials, providing a good understanding of component design.

As part of the curriculum, you will train on automobile assemblies in fully-equipped campus auto shops. Both streams provide the same vehicle technology, and in-school content as the Automotive Service Technician (AST) apprenticeship qualification, plus a college diploma that reflects high standards of learning. The curriculum will prepare learners to enter the industry as well as be successful on exemption testing for licensing qualifications.
