The Auto Mechanics (High School) program provides students with the opportunity to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to enter into the motor vehicle repair industry. Students will learn theory and its practical application while working on automobiles in a shop setting, by performing selected repairs, and by applying basic diagnostic and troubleshooting techniques. 

Work Practicum

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.


To achieve apprenticeship accreditation, students must complete the accredited program with an accumulative average of 70% or better in the trade subjects.
