                  Students and Employers


Automotive service technicians, service writers and advisors, service and parts
managers, trainers and professors or automotive manufacturer specialists: These are
just some of the titles students who complete the Toyota technician training at
Centennial College can obtain. If you are interested in one of these positions and are
already a Toyota Dealer apprentice, this Automotive Service Technician Toyota (MAP
32) is designed just for you.


Housed within Canada's transportation training hub, Ashtonbee Campus, this Toyota
technician training program is completed in four eight-week blocks, alternating with
apprenticeship work terms at students' Toyota dealer. Because of its location, all in-
school training uses Toyota vehicles and components in fully-equipped automotive labs,
giving the students that extra edge. During this time, students partake in the
traditional apprenticeship curriculum, as well as additional training on Toyota products'
description, operation, diagnostics and repair. Among the specific tasks students
master during school sessions of their Toyota Technician training are: diagnosing
problems using Toyota diagnostic equipment and performing repairs and preventive
maintenance on engines, transmissions, electrical systems, brakes and tires. They also
become comfortable with conducting vehicle inspections. In-school training covers
eight weeks more material in greater depth than the traditional apprenticeship
curriculum.


Once they are comfortable with certain aspects of the Toyota technician trade, students
apply their knowledge to their workplace, where they work alongside professionals to
learn more. With their newly acquired knowledge, they then return to in-school Toyota
technician training and gain knowledge in more advanced topics. Students' training on
Toyota products makes them productive immediately after completing each level of
their training.


Toyota technician applicants must possess at minimum an Ontario Secondary School
Diploma or a GED or equivalent. They are also required to be employed by a Toyota
dealership or be selected through an interview process. If students are not employed at
a Toyota dealership, they are required to find a sponsor for the hands-on portion of
their training to begin classes. Canvassing local dealers for employment and eventually
sponsorship would be a great place to start. Candidates for the Toyota technician
training may apply to enter this program at various levels by contacting the
Coordinator. Acceptance to Toyota technician training is based on successful completion
of all entry requirements and space is limited. Please note that some students within
