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.
Continuous Program Improvement
MITT continuously reviews and improves programs to maintain relevance in the workplace and effective learning experiences for all students. Although the institution strives to have the website reflect the most current version of all programs, MITT reserves the right to change the program curriculum as necessary to meet industry and accreditation requirements. As a result, course information and learning outcomes may be adjusted prior to the scheduled course start date.
Due to the challenges raised by COVID-19, MITT reserves the right to alter course delivery methods and/or program durations. Course deliveries may require increased percentages of online/distance learning components, alternatives to work practicums, and extended program durations to accommodate physical distancing and work practicum placement restrictions. MITT will be providing an exceptional level of enhanced student and program supports to ensure this modified program experience continues to meet all required learning outcomes for your program.

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.
