Make yourself indispensable! This program opens the door to two different career pathways and three different certifications. Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive credit for their Level 1 Motor Vehicle Body Repairer and certification as an Automotive Refinishing Prep Technician, upon passing the exam. With these two achievements, students are able to pursue certification as a Red Seal Motor Vehicle Body Repairer and Red Seal Automotive Painter (prerequisite is Automotive Refinishing Prep Technician).
In addition, to provide our students with a complete learning experience, this program includes a two week work-term where students work alongside apprentices and Red Seal technicians in an industry shop. This experience orients students to an actual work situation and will help them determine the type of shop environment in which they would like to pursue a career.
