Our district offers TUITION FREE trades training to students who are hoping to gain their level 1 technical training as an Automotive Collision Repairer.
The SD43 brochure, SD43 Application and other links on the right will provide excellent information, expectations and requirements for this program.
Applications are taken on a "rolling basis", meaning students can apply any time after Sept. 1st of the current school year for the following school year's intake
The Coquitlam coordinator will do a personal interview once a completed application is received, Final decisions are made in mid-May but early offers of acceptance will be granted in some areas where there is strong application.
Note: the Vancouver Community College (VCC) application is completed by students after they have been successfully accepted into the program.
SD43 partners with VCC to offer this a post secondary program from late September to mid-May. Upon successful completion, students receive 28 high school credits at the grade 12 level.
