               Technician in Just Two Years


Have you always had an interest in fixing cars? Do the inner workings of a car
fascinate you? Do you love cars such as the Dodge Challenger or the Chrysler
300? Do jobs like automotive service technician, service writer/advisor, service
manager, instructor/professor and auto company representative sound like they
may appeal to you? Have you completed at least an Ontario Secondary School
Diploma (OSSD) or General Educational Development (GED) or equivalent? If
you answered yes to these questions, you may have what it takes to apply for
the Chrysler Apprenticeship (officially known as Automotive Service Technician
Co-op Apprenticeship – Partnered with Chrysler Canada Inc.) at Centennial
College.


Now is a great time to obtain Chrysler apprenticeship training as the U.S.
Bureau of Labor Statistics expects job growth in Automotive Service Technology
to grow by 14 percent from 2006 through 2016. When applying to Centennial
College’s offering, please note that you may also be required to present a
resume and transcript for faculty review. In addition, future Chrysler technicians
may be required to fill out a questionnaire and attend an interview. Note that
English proficiency and satisfactory results in a program admission session will
also be considered during the admissions process.


Once students are accepted into the Chrysler Technician undertaking, they
experience both in-school sessions and on the job training at a Chrysler
dealership. This works by seeing students spend the first eight months of the
program in school, eight months in co-op as a registered apprentice and a final
eight months in school. Altering between on-campus and off-campus learning
ensures that students are well prepared for the field and its challenges. By
spending the first eight months at Ashtonbee Campus, the province’s largest
transportation training centre, students are able to apply the skills they have
learned during their employer session. By coming back to the school after their
employer training is over, they are able to apply what they have learned in the
field to the second portion of their program. It’s an ideal combination.


As part of the in-school curriculum, students train on automobile assemblies in
fully-equipped campus automotive labs. They focus on Chrysler product
component design and repair, as it applies to the apprenticeship curriculum. In

addition, they take courses in automotive trade business, English and general
education that will help prepare them for employment opportunities in a
dealership administrative role. Specific courses included in the Chrysler
apprenticeship, include: Work Place Practices & Procedures, Engine Systems,
Drive Train Systems, Suspension/Steering & Brakes, Electrical/Electronics &
Emissions, Occupational Health & Safety; College Communications; Autobody
Estimating and more.


Once students graduate, they can take on a number of roles that include
automotive service technician, service writer/advisor, service manager,
instructor/professor and auto company representative. As a Chrysler
technician duties include: diagnosing problems using Chrysler diagnostic
equipment; performing repairs and preventive maintenance on engines,
transmissions, electrical systems, brakes and tires.
