|Description:||The Motive Power Fundamentals program will prepare you to work in a variety of employment settings in both large and small organizations, such as dealerships, service and repair shops, and retail stores.
In the program, you'll learn to identify basic motive power system problems, to inspect and test basic motive power components and systems, and to use a variety of test equipment to support vehicle transportation systems. Because the program is facilitated from Ashtonbee Campus, which houses fully outfitted labs, you'll also be equipped with safe working practices in the use of machinery, tools and equipment. Finally, you'll be able to perform customer service functions, and to apply basic communication, documentation, information technology and computer skills to support a motive power environment.
Upon completion of Motive Power Fundamentals you'll be accredited with Level 1 in-school apprenticeship training. This will allow you to enter the work force directly after graduation or to transfer directly into the second year of Centennial's Automotive Motive Power diploma program to further expand and build on your skill set.
This course will be offered with hybrid delivery. Hybrid programs combine the best of both worlds: hands-on experience in our labs on campus, and remote access to virtualization software, plus recordings of our laboratory activities. Some courses are held in labs, but the first semester can be completed at a distance for those unable to travel. Students studying hybrid programs in Toronto will have scheduled lab activities on-campus in the fall and winter semesters. Students studying hybrid programs online will have access to new simulation software, virtualization software and recorded virtual lab demonstrations to gain in depth knowledge. If students are unable to travel to Canada, the first semester of 30 programs can be completed online (including online and hybrid options).
