As cars grow more sophisticated, skilled automotive technicians are an industry must. As an automotive student at BCIT, you will learn and enhance the skills that enable you to be job-ready when you graduate.
BCIT has collaborated with the Toyota Dealers in British Columbia to support students in this program. In addition to receiving the Provincial curriculum, you will receive training, exposure, and focus on Toyota technologies.
The automotive technician program provides you with the knowledge and hands-on skills needed for your career pathway into the automotive industry. As a graduate, you will be able to pursue a career as an automotive technician and continue your training with BCIT through the apprenticeship program.

You will also receive credit for your first level of apprentice technical training from the Industry Training Authority (ITA) and 450 hours credit towards your time in trade. At the successful completion of this program, you will be scheduled to write the Provincial Level 1 apprenticeship exam.

Throughout British Columbia and Canada, there is a serious shortage of skilled and certified automotive technicians who are specialized in Asian vehicles. As a result, independent Toyota dealers are seeking trained apprentices. Job placement prospects are currently good and there is high probability that you will have a job waiting for you when you graduate.
The median salary for our graduates is in the range of $2,000 per month. Graduates who go on to complete their apprenticeship training may earn approximately $50,000 per year. Graduates can aspire to top industry positions with salaries in the $60,000-plus range per year.
