Automotive Technology Certification
ATC automobile schools in Vancouver put you on the fast track to apprenticeship
In British Columbia, graduates of ATC’s Automotive Technology Program can receive recognition for their training. They first need to contact the Industry Training Authority (ITA) and they may receive credits for hours worked with the number of hours credited at the discretion of the employer.
The Interprovincial Standards “Red Seal” Program defines an apprenticeship as “An agreement between a person (an apprentice) who wants to learn a skill and an employer who needs a skilled worker — “earning while learning.”
Apprenticeship is a proven industry-based learning system that combines on-the-job experience with technical training and leads to certification as a journeyperson. On completion of the training period, apprentices receive a Certificate of Qualification. On average, 85% of the apprentice’s two to five years of training is spent in the workplace; the rest is spent at a training institution.”
