Program description - September 2021

Have you rebuilt your dirt bike? Perhaps you’ve piped your sled? Maybe you enjoy riding but have never attempted repairs. Regardless of your experience, if you are a motorcycle and power sport enthusiast, turn your passion into a career by enrolling in this program. Through a combination of hands-on activities and theory-based classes, graduates from the Motive Power Techniques – Motorcycle and Power Sport Vehicles Repair certificate program are well-positioned to enter and be successful working in this trade area. Throughout the duration of your program, you will develop a strong foundation of technical skills needed for the motorcycle trade. Additionally, you will receive training on the unique aspects of snowmobiles, all-terrain vehicles and personal watercraft. Our large shop facility features a work area with motorcycle lifts, computer terminals, and overhead workstation lighting for each student. You will develop safe working practices in the use of tools, machinery, and equipment and will apply basic communication, documentation, information technology, and computer skills to support a motive power related work environment. To round out your training, you will be introduced to the basics of running a motive power business and relevant legal issues. As a graduate of the certificate program, you will have an opportunity to receive automatic exemption from Level 1 of the Motorcycle Technician apprenticeship in-school training should you choose to pursue that career pathway.
