At UCFV, we can put students on the road towards a career as a heavy duty, commercial transport, or agriculture technician by teaching them how to service and repair equipment such as trucks, crawler units, and farm tractors. The Heavy Duty/Commercial Transport program will prepare students for entry into the provincial apprenticeship program, or for entry directly into employment. Students will develop skills needed to work in the trade.

Theory and shop procedures are set up to simulate job conditions, so punctuality and good work habits are essential. This program exceeds the provincial standards of Foundation and ELTT programs taught throughout B.C.
