Description:The Trades Foundations - Motive Power program will provide you with an opportunity to prepare to meet the English communications assessment entry point for a Motive Power program in the School of Transportation.

You'll learn about a variety of passenger, commercial and heavy duty equipment vehicles through the study of component identification, shop safety practices, tool identification and the use of specialized equipment. The development of sound communication and mathematical skills, within a trade context, will also be emphasized. Throughout the program, you'll be able to apply theoretical knowledge to hands-on, practical work on a variety of training units, vehicles and equipment in a lab environment.

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).
