Program description - September 2021

If you enjoy the challenge of solving complex problems in a fast-paced environment and you possess strong mechanical abilities, this program is a good fit for you. Conestoga’s Motive Power Technician – Truck and Coach diploma program will provide you with the opportunity to develop skills in overall repair and maintenance and advanced technology. With a focus on hands-on training in our state-of-the-art shops 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 including the repair of engines, transmissions, drive trains and electrical/electronic components, this program also prepares you to take on related roles in the truck and coach 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. As a graduate of the diploma program, you will have an opportunity to receive automatic exemption from Levels 1 and 2 of the Truck and Coach Technician apprenticeship in-school training should you choose to pursue that career pathway.
