Truck and Transport Mechanic

Truck and Transport Mechanics inspect, repair and maintain commercial trucks, emergency vehicles, buses and road transport vehicles. They work for commercial transport vehicle dealers, garages and service stations. These mechanics work on the mechanical, electrical and electronic components of vehicles, including fuel, brake, steering and suspension, transmission, emission control and exhaust, and cooling and climate control systems. Truck and Transport Mechanics are required to use computerized diagnostic equipment to do preventive maintenance and test vehicle performance.

This trade shares common Levels 1 and 2 training with other Heavy Equipment Service trades, and thus, may be referred to as “Heavy Mechanical Trades” in our schedules. Refer to this trade’s ‘Program Profile’ via the Industry Training Authority for specific details.

A Truck and Transport Mechanic is a nationally designated trade under the Interprovincial Standards Red Seal program. The trade is also known as “Commercial Transport Vehicle Mechanic.”
