If you love cars, then you’ve come to the right place. NOVA has been designated as the provincial Centre of Expertise for Automobile Mechanics. This program has a very diverse curriculum and is made up of nearly 30 learning modules. An automobile mechanic’s work is more than just maintaining motor vehicles in perfect working order. It’s making sure cars are optimized for performance, are safe, and conform to environmental standards. Technology moves fast and mechanics need to be aware of the latest technical information so they can efficiently diagnose problems. Mechanics need to understand manufacturers drawings, diagrams, specifications, and car maker recommendations. The ability to communicate with clients, think and solve problems, as well as work independently, are also essential qualities in this service driven industry. Get your hands dirty and discover the trade through applied learning and practical training. Our program helps you stay ahead of the curve and discover the most up to date methods, procedures, and skills essential to the trade and a successful career in the automotive world.

A diploma could lead to careers as automotive technician, automotive specialist (brakes, suspension, steering, electrical), service manager, service adviser, service centre owner/operator, performance specialist, and auto parts sales (dealership or aftermarket).
