Automotive Service Technician Apprenticeship

Apprenticeship training is for people who are currently working in industry and who are sponsored by an employer and registered with SkilledTradesBC. Apprenticeship programs combine work-based training (typically 80-85%) and technical training (15-20%) taken in a classroom and shop setting.

The length of an apprenticeship can range from one to five years, but most require four years to complete.

Many trades, known as the Red Seal trades, have nationally recognized certification standards. The credentials of a certified tradesperson who has successfully earned a Red Seal ticket are recognized across Canada.
