College Diploma in Motive Power Technician - Automotive Service

With today’s technological advancements, Automotive Service Technicians need skills in overall repair and maintenance, in addition to advanced technology. 

Conestoga’s Motive Power Technician – Automotive Service diploma program will allow you to develop skills in these areas. 

With a focus on hands-on training to complement the in-class theory, you will be well-positioned to enter this high-demand trade area. 

In addition to the core trade-related skills, this program also prepares you to take on related roles within the automotive industry, including business development, shop and parts management, and a variety of other alternative options to a traditional technician career. 

For those interested in further developing their technical skills, the second year of the program will enable you to delve deeper into related topics such as electric hybrids, engine failure analysis and electrical diagnostics and repair.
