Overview - 2021/2022

Fixing and maintaining the vehicles that help build our towns and cities is no small task. It takes attention to detail and the ability to think quickly on your feet, just two of the skills you’ll learn in the Truck and Coach Technician (Day Release) [Apprenticeship].

You’re ready to work and you want to combine training with earning power, so you’ve chosen the apprenticeship component, where you’ll mix workplace-based training under the direction of experienced workers. You’ll combine that with short stints in the classroom or in an online training environment.

You’ll work in fleet maintenance for construction companies, public transit systems or small repair operations, getting important on-the-job training and real-world work connections. You’ll learn to troubleshoot and repair engines, power trains, ignition and electrical systems, brakes, steering, suspension and more. You’ll also learn about job safety and environmental regulations affecting the transportation industry.
