Students in the Automotive Service Technology Diploma will, throughout the 2 years, be working in a classroom and shop environment and will gain the theoretical knowledge and hands on experience to succeed in the automotive technology industry. The initial courses of study focus on students learning and practicing tool kit use, identifying tools, mechanical technology as used on the shop floor, as well as to understand and identify design structures of tools and technology. This will all be undertaken following the principles of safety and WHMIS. Once mastery of this is achieved, students will learn the theory and practice to the specific components of vehicle repairs.
