The new Automotive Service Technology diploma is a unique opportunity to get the technical and career essential skills you need to succeed in the automotive industry. It can also serve as a pathway to apprenticeship.

This two-year diploma provides exposure to new trends and technologies. Once you complete the program, you will have the knowledge, skills and hands-on experience in dynamic shop environments to diagnose vehicle systems, and repair and maintain vehicles.

Prepare to enter a diverse field of employment once you complete this diploma, with positions at dealerships, national auto chains, independent shops and more. As a graduate, you will be prepared for rewarding careers such as automotive service technician, service advisor, shop foreman or service manager. Specialization within the automotive service industry may also lead to entrepreneurial or self-employment opportunities as an autobody shop owner.

The diploma program offers a direct pathway into trades training at NAIT without having to first be a registered apprentice.

I did 2 semesters of game design online and the experience was awesome. Staff are very helpful and patient with me even though I ask A LOT of questions. Online system for learning was simple and easy to navigate. I don't know if it's me, because I'm out of town and it's harder to make connections, but I recommend building industry contacts while you're learning. NAIT will help, but I don't think they'll do it for you.
