Automotive Service Technician

Automotive Service Technicians examine, test and repair the parts and systems on cars and light trucks. They often use computerized diagnostic equipment to test, adjust and repair key vehicle components such as engines, steering systems, braking systems, drive trains, vehicle suspensions and electrical systems.

The work of an Automotive Service Technician also involves reassembling and testing repaired items against manufacturers' standards, as well as performing preventative maintenance such as wheel alignments, oil changes and tune-ups. Automotive Service Technicians also advise customers on the work performed, general vehicle conditions and future repair requirements.

Automotive Service Technician is a nationally designated trade under the Interprovincial Standards Red Seal Program.

Recommendations

Good hand-eye coordination, mechanical aptitude, time-management skills, logical thinking and decision making, and excellent communication.

 

The following education is recommended: Grade 12 or equivalent, including English 12; Algebra 11 or Trade Math 11; Physics 11 or Science & Tech 11.

 

The Apprenticeship Program is comprised of Levels 1-to-4 of progressive technical training, with each Level taking 7 weeks (210 hours) to complete, however certification can be achieved at any desired level (refer to the Industry Training Authority for full details).
