Our district offers TUITION FREE trades training to students who are hoping to gain their level 1 technical training as a Automotive Service Technician (AST).
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.
SD43 partners with the Industry Training Authority (ITA) to offer this a post secondary program for all of semester 2. Upon successful completion, students receive 16 high school credits at the grade 12 level.
