All automotive service technician apprentices need to be registered with the Industry Training Authority with support of an industry sponsor.
The Automotive Apprenticeship program consists of four levels of training, with either six or seven weeks of in-school training in each of the four levels.
You attend a six- or seven-week training program each year. Classes are scheduled in the day time and include both theory and practice. The program follows the approved British Columbia Automotive Service Technician Program Outline, which meets the requirements for Canadian Red Seal accreditation and prepares you to write the Interprovincial Examination leading to final certification.
The Automotive Service Technician field is both challenging and rewarding. The technology changes very rapidly, which makes for an interesting work environment. There are many opportunities for advancement with well-paid salaries. Interprovincial certification is recognized Canada-wide and proves that you have what it takes to succeed in the changing workplace.
If you are not currently working as an automotive service technician, you may consider enrolling first in UFV's Automotive Service Technician foundation program to gain the entry-level skills needed to secure employment. As a graduate of the program, you get advanced apprenticeship placement when you find an employer to sponsor you.
