Automotive Service Technician | Foundation
In Fall 2020 this trades program is offered via Distributed Learning with a focus on blended delivery. Trades students must prepare for face-to-face learning on campus where practical components of training take place in a regulated manner and meet all necessary health protocols. Learn more about Distributed Learning at CMTN.
The Automotive Service Technician Foundation Training gives students the technical skills and knowledge to repair, adjust and replace mechanical parts in automobiles and light trucks. The full-time, 30-week program covers all the theory and practical components necessary for the first-year Automotive Service Technician Certificate, and provides a complement of valuable industry skills.
