By enrolling in our Auto Mechanics program, you’ll gain the knowledge and skills necessary for a career in the $7 billion motor vehicle industry – and it’s a busy one. In our program, you’ll pick up the theory of auto repair as well as hands on training while performing selected repairs and you’ll also have an opportunity to receive training on the state-of-the-art Hunter DSP 600 laser targeted alignment machine.
The Auto Mechanics program may feature a Work Practicum placement in a local workplace which provides students with on-the-job training and experience. Students will apply skills learned in the classroom and develop new skills through working within an actual employer's facility.
MITT does not guarantee practicum placements and, in such situations, the Institute will explore alternative options for program completion with a student.
High school students who successfully complete all coursework with a cumulative average of 70% or greater in an accredited trade program may be eligible to write the PATHS exam. Students who receive a 70% or higher on the PATHS exam and who register as an apprentice, will receive a Level 1 technical training exemption for that trade.
