Description:The Automotive Parts and Service Operations program is the first post-secondary program in Canada that focuses on parts service, warranty administration, customer relations and business operations. This diploma program will prepare students to work in an administrative capacity within the wider transportation industry, with an emphasis on operational management support. The program includes introductory business courses and specific automotive courses that will expose students to multiple aspects of the transportation industry, from automotive to truck, coach and heavy-duty operations. This unique combination of business and automotive courses will prepare students for a variety of positions within the automotive industry, such as a service consultant, parts advisor, warranty administrator or customer relations.

Gain valuable experience through Co-op.

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).
