Lakeland College has announced that it will be expanding its programming with the pre-employment automotive service technician program. Students in the program will complete 12 weeks of classroom work alongside students in the apprenticeship program as well as a four-week practicum. The program will cover topics such as basic maintenance, brake, and electrical systems; steering and suspension; and safety. Program graduates will be eligible to write the 1st year apprenticeship exam upon completion. The program is expected to launch in 2022 at Lakeland’s Vermilion campus.
