Heavy Duty/Commercial Transport Mechanics
This 10 month Heavy Duty/Commercial Transport Mechanics Foundation Program prepares students with the skills and knowledge they will need to find a position as Heavy Duty or Commercial Transport Apprentice.
The program covers all aspects of highway-type trucks and buses, bulldozers, loaders, excavators and earthmovers, including shop equipment, safety, mechanical reasoning, air and hydraulic brake systems, power transfer systems, gasoline and diesel engine systems, and basic welding.
The program consists of classroom lectures each day with the remaining time spent in the shop. In addition, students can expect to spend at least one hour each night on homework assignments.
Successful completion of the program provides you with an entry-level certification in heavy duty mechanics and commercial transport mechanics and allows you to choose which one of the two apprenticeships you would like to pursue.
