O que eu aprenderei?

In our on-site, real-world shop, you’ll apply your knowledge and learn the mechanics of trucks, commercial transport vehicles and heavy equipment.

This nine-month program prepares students for entry level positions as apprentices in four trades: Truck and Transport Mechanic, Diesel Engine Mechanic, Transport Trailer Technician and Heavy Duty Equipment Technician.
