With the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics expecting job growth in Automotive Service
Technology to grow by 14 percent from 2006 through 2016, now is a great time to
consider taking a Chrysler apprenticeship if you have an interest in fixing cars.
Automotive service technicians who work for Chrysler are responsible for writing vehicle
damage repair estimates, repairing broken or worn mechanical components, maintaining
repair and service records, installing equipment, components and systems; testing
vehicles both before and after repair as well as repairing electrical wiring, circuits and
fixtures. With electronic systems and computers being integrated into running vehicles,
Chrysler technicians must also have an increasingly broad knowledge of new vehicle
technologies. In addition, those who attend a Chrysler apprenticeship may become
service writer/advisors, service managers, instructor/professors and auto company
representatives.

If you have completed at least an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or General
Educational Development (GED) or equivalent, you may apply to Centennial College’s
Chrysler Apprenticeship (officially known as Automotive Service Technician Co-op
Apprenticeship – Partnered with Chrysler Canada Inc). When applying, please note that
you may also be required to present a resume and transcript for faculty review. In
addition, futures Chrysler technicians may be required to fill out a questionnaire and
attend an interview. English proficiency and satisfactory results in a program admission
session will also be considered during the admissions process. This offering, of which
Chrysler Canada Inc. is a valuable partner, is designed prepare you for an exciting future
as a skilled professional in the transportation field, one of Canada’s largest industries.

Those accepted to the Chrysler Technician undertaking attend both in-school sessions
and on the job training at a Chrysler dealership. As such, 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.

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. During this time, students 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 educations 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; Auto body Estimating and more. Lastly, as Ashtonbee Campus is fully
equipped, it allows Chrysler apprenticeship students train on automobile assemblies in
fully equipped campus automotive labs.

They also gain on-the-job experience in a paid Chrysler technician co-op placement at a
Chrysler Canada Inc. dealership. 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.
