The Heavy Duty Equipment Mechanic Apprenticeship requires time learning on the job and in the classroom. A Heavy Duty Equipment Mechanic trainee must complete a four-year program including 6000 workplace hours and 720 in-school hours of training. After completion of training, a passing grade on exams will result in the ITA Certificate of Qualification (Heavy Duty Equipment Mechanic), Certificate of Apprenticeship and the Inter-Provincial Red Seal Endorsement.
Students work on mechanical and electronic components of off-highway equipment. This includes most equipment systems such as fuel, brakes, steering, suspension, tracks, under-carriage, hydraulics, transmission, emission control and exhaust, engines, electrical, cooling and air conditioning.
