Graduates who meet specific criteria can earn credit toward Apprenticeship Manitoba Level 1.

Who it is for

Individuals with a passion for hands-on work, an interest in technology and problem solving, and a desire to share their knowledge and advice in conversations with customers.

Program Improvement

The Auto Mechanics Program has undergone a review and will be relaunched in Fall 2021 as the Automotive Service Technician Program. An updated list of course curriculum has been added to the course information page.

COVID-19 Response

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.

Work practicum is a mandatory component of this program. Students must meet all program eligibility criteria to qualify for practicum. MITT does not guarantee practicum placements when students do not meet eligibility criteria (including having a valid co-op work permit) or when sufficient placements are not available. In such situations, MITT will explore alternative options for program completion with a student.

Students who successfully complete the accredited program with an accumulative average of 70 per cent 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 Apprenticeship Manitoba Level 1 in-school technical training and 900 hours in the Automotive Service Technician Apprenticeship program.

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.
