Get your Automotive Service Technician Red Seal

The Industry Training Authority requires that all automotive service technicians be certified or registered as an apprentice.

The Automotive Apprenticeship program consists of four levels of training, with six or seven weeks of in-school training in each of the four levels.

You attend a six- or seven-week training program each year. Classes are scheduled in the day time and include both theory and practice. The program follows the approved British Columbia Automotive Service Technician Program Outline, which meets the requirements for Canadian Red Seal accreditation and prepares you to write the Interprovincial Examination leading to final certification.

The Automotive Service Technician field is both challenging and rewarding. The technology changes very rapidly, which makes for an interesting work environment. There are many opportunities for advancement and the salaries are good. Interprovincial certification is recognized worldwide and proves that you have what it takes to succeed in the changing workplace.

If you are not currently working as an automotive service technician, you may consider enrolling first in UFV's Automotive Service Technician program to gain the entry-level skills needed to secure employment. As a graduate of the program, you will get advanced apprenticeship placement when you find an employer to sponsor you.
