Learn to keep motorcycles, quads, snowmobiles, ATVs and more running at peak performance in the Motorcycle and Powersports Product Repair Techniques program.

Why this program?

The Motorcycle and Powersports Product Repair Techniques program will be your gateway to the motorcycle and power sports industry. Through training in the enviable Ashtonbee campus, Ontario’s largest transportation training facility, you'll learn essential diagnostic skills, practice hands-on techniques and gain the theoretical knowledge to best position yourself for employment in this exciting field. The best part? No previous experience is necessary. The program will teach you everything you need to know. 

What can I expect?

Program instructors are not only connected to the industry but are also seasoned professionals with real-world experience who are committed to your success. 

You'll spend about 60 per cent of your time learning the theory and technique to build a solid base of knowledge on motorcycle and powersports repair. Not only will you learn essential diagnostic skills that you'll use throughout your career, but the offering will also cover a complete range of technical training in areas such as workplace practices, welding, mechanical systems, workplace safety and computers.

Because hands-on practice is the best way to learn a skill, you'll spend the remaining 40 per cent of program time practicing and honing your skills in spacious, modern and well-equipped labs.

What will I have when I’m done?

You'll graduate with a base of knowledge and skills that will improve your job prospects and propel you into an excellent career. You'll also have a valuable certificate from a well-known and prestigious school, which has been trusted by the industry for more than 40 years, that you can use to help secure employment or an apprenticeship.

Because the Motorcycle and Powersports Product Repair program is based on the Small Engine and Level 1 Motorcycle Technician apprenticeship curriculum, you'll have the opportunity to earn credit toward your apprenticeship requirement. You'll also have the potential to obtain a certification in manufacturer parts and service online systems.
