Complete Toyota Technician Training From The Province's  Largest Transportation Training Centre "What happens at Centennial College is once you're signed up as an apprentice in the   automotive program, you are then selected to go to school where you have the option of  attending different programs [such as the dealer­specific Toyota technician training] or  the general automotive programs," sums up student Ryan about his Centennial College  experience. "What we learn is different vehicle systems, such as electrical, body electrical,  engine, transmission, steering, front­end, all the things that would allow your Toyota to be  serviced by qualified a Toyota technician." Ryan   makes   some   very   important   points   about   this   program,   officially   known   as   the  Automotive Service Technician Toyota (MAP 32). Let's further expand on the information  he has offered. First and foremost, students who specialize in Toyota training go on to   work at the world's largest automobile maker by sales and production as Toyota is always  looking for new service technicians who are specifically trained and knowledgeable in its  vehicles.   Upon   graduation,   Toyota   technicians   work   at   dealerships   or   other   related  workplaces,   diagnosing   problems   using   Toyota   diagnostic   equipment   and   performing  repairs and preventive maintenance on engines, transmissions, electrical systems, brakes  and tires. Technicians also conduct vehicle inspections. With so many opportunities, the  outlook for the industry is promising.  Furthermore, during their time with Centennial College's Toyota technician training, they  obtain the ideal balance between hands­on training and academic learning by alternating  between in­school sessions and time with an employer for 64 weeks. During the in­school  sessions, students may be eligible for Employment Insurance. Meanwhile, during their  times with an employer, they are compensated for their work.  The   Toyota   technician   training   places   the   focus   on   electronics   and   diagnosing   of  computerized control systems. But students do also obtain knowledge of all aspects of  vehicle   technology,   as   this   Toyota   technician   training   is   more   in­depth   with   longer   in­ school sessions than traditional apprenticeships. In addition, they are exposed to different  vehicle systems such as electrical, body electrical, engine, transmission, steering, front­ end, and all other aspects that would allow a Toyota vehicle to be serviced.  Meanwhile,   when   they   are   with   their   Toyota   employer,   students   encounter   real   life  Address: Centennial College, P.O.

experiences that allow them to learn good customer service and communication skills.  The time­with­an­employer part of the  Toyota technician  training also allows students to  apply what they have learned and gain new knowledge from the professionals with whom  they are working. As   with   any   college   program,   there   is   an   application   process   to   obtaining   one   of   the  limited   spots   within   the   Automotive   Service   Technician   Toyota   (MAP   32)   modified  apprenticeship   offering.   Students   must   possess   at   minimum   an   Ontario   Secondary  School   Diploma   or   a   GED   or   equivalent.   They   must   also   be   employed   by   a   Toyota  dealership or be selected through an interview process. Candidates may apply directly to   Centennial College, with successful applicants obtaining an employer and registering as a  MAP apprentice with the Apprenticeship Branch of the Ministry of Training, Colleges and  Universities.
