Heavy Duty Commercial Transport Trade is a highly paid, hands-on career where outdoor work is as common as indoor. On completion of the trade, there are opportunities for work from heavy equipment trucking, marine, and agriculture to work in shops on fuel injection, hydraulics, and transmission overhauls. Heavy Duty Mechanics are in high demand across BC and Canada.
