This program is accredited with level 1 in Marine and Power Sports, through Apprenticeship Manitoba.
The Motosport Technician 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.
Students who meet all program-specific practicum eligibility criteria will qualify to participate in a 4-week practicum placement for full time students and 6-week practicum for half-day students.
MITT does not guarantee practicum placements and, in such situations, the Institute will explore alternative options for program completion with a student.
Students who successfully complete the accredited program with an accumulative average of 70% or better in the trade subjects and level for which the program was accredited, gain employment and register as an apprentice within two years of graduating, will receive credit for Level 1 in-school technical training and 900 hours in the Marine and Outdoor Power Equipment Technician Apprenticeship program.
Trade certification for Motorsport Technician is available, but voluntary, in all provinces and the territories. In Manitoba, Motorsport Technicians is classified under the Marine and Outdoor Power Equipment Technician apprenticeship trade.
