Centennial College’s (Automotive) Motive Power Technician – Technical program is for you if your strengths are in mathematics and physics, and your interest is in motor vehicle technology.
Because the School of Transportation also offers an “administrative” version of this offering, you will spend the first semester learning topics that are common to both streams. This time will allow you to decide which path is best for you. The second semester will shift to a technical focus and cover applied mechanics, vehicle dynamics and properties of materials, providing a good understanding of component design.
Both streams will include the same vehicle technology, and in-school content as the Automotive Service Technician (AST) apprenticeship qualification.
To ensure that you are comfortable with the many hands-on tasks you will complete in the field, you will train on automobile assemblies in fully-equipped automotive shops.
