About the Program

The Motive Power Technician - Heavy Duty Equipment diploma program is for students who are interested in opening their own shop, or becoming a parts manager or working with specialized technology. This program provides a strong technical base and also focuses on motive power business, shop management and parts management. Conestoga's Motive Power diploma program provides a strong foundation in general and specific trade-related academics, safety training, technical skills, and the business skills needed to succeed. The program is structured to provide the theoretical and work-related experience which registered apprentices normally acquire in the first two years in the workplace. Students also develop safe working practices in the use of machinery, tools and equipment and will be able to apply basic communication, documentation, information technology and computer skills to support working in the motive power industry. This program covers all learning outcomes for level 1 and level 2 of the related apprenticeship program in Ontario. A graduate of this program may not be required to complete the in-school apprenticeship training or take an exemption exam for levels 1 and 2 should they choose to pursue a heavy duty equipment technician apprenticeship.
