					Motorcycle Technician Training That Doesn’t Require Previous Experience

“Centennial College’s motorcycle technician training program in Canada supplied me with the skills
needed to succeed,” says 2011 graduate Dave Cheriyan of the Motorcycle and Power sports Product
Repair Techniques. “I was able to find a position in the field prior to completing the course and I am able
to apply my knowledge and skills learned to excel in my career!”

This positive testimonial offers insight into the in-depth training offering at this motorcycle technician
school, but let’s take a closer look at the benefits of attending. First and foremost, the Centennial College
program, which takes two semesters to complete, is designed to open doors for students to a career in the
motorcycle, power sports and small engine industries — even if they have no previous experience. As
such, theory and practical skills are equally balanced to ensure that students are field-ready upon
graduation and all topics are presented by faculty members who are seasoned professionals, connected to
                    the industry and committed to student success.

                   Among these motorcycle technician training topics, which are based on the
                   apprenticeship curriculum, are: the complete range of technical training, workplace
                   practices, welding, mechanical systems, health and safety in the workplace, computers,
                   math, communications and potential certification in manufacturer parts and service
                   online systems. Training is also provided in the latest all-important diagnostic skills. All
                   courses are facilitated from Centennial College’s transportation hub, Ashtonbee
                   Campus. This location is the largest transportation centre in the province and boasts
                   fully equipped motorcycle technician school labs that include both motorcycle for
                   students to train on and tools of the trade.

                   It is worth noting that this motorcycle technician training’s commitment to the pursuit
                   of excellence in the delivery of education and training has led to its assessment by the
                   Canadian Automotive Repair and Service Council (CARS). The CARS National
                   Accreditation Board has endorsed the program’s full compliance with the national
                   industry standards since 2001. Additionally, there is an active program advisory
                   committee representing product manufacturers, dealers and independent repairers.

                   Upon completion of this motorcycle technician training, graduates may have an
opportunity for credit towards their apprenticeship requirement. Additionally, they are fully prepared to
work as apprentice motorcycle technicians, apprentice small engine mechanics, and parts and service
counter staff.
