Take an apprenticeship to become an auto body repair technician - 2021/2022

Today’s auto body mechanic needs sophisticated and specialized skills to keep our vehicles safe and on the road. If you’re excited by the opportunity to begin an in-demand and dynamic career, the Auto Body Repairer Apprentice (Branch II – Block Release) [Apprenticeship] program will give you the skills necessary to drive your dreams forward.

You’ll learn about the different types of materials used in the construction and repair of automobiles and gain confidence in using the materials and tools available to repair damaged vehicles. You’ll test your skills on everything from large-scale refinishing repairs such as complete paint jobs to detailing finishes and colour matching. You’ll also complete an apprenticeship component of the program, allowing you to earn real cash while testing your skills out in the real world, on real vehicles, with your future colleagues and business partners.
