If you enjoy maintaining and repairing equipment, you can't get much bigger than the heavy equipment and off-road industry! Heavy Equipment Technicians typically repair and overhaul engines, mechanical and powershift transmissions, hydraulics, and basic electrical systems on mobile and stationary equipment. This 12 week program will introduce you to the maintenance of a wide variety of equipment including trucks and trailers, off-road, and earthmoving equipment.

Upon successful completion of the pre-employment program, students who meet the apprenticeship requirements for the trade (see www.tradesecrets.alberta.ca) are eligible to write the first period apprenticeship exam. (There is a fee, payable to Apprenticeship and Industry Training, to write the exam. This fee is in addition to tuition, books and supplies.) CSA approved personal protective equipment is required to complete the practical portion of this program. You may be required to purchase other tools and equipment for your chosen trade.
