The Automotive Sector Council TestDrive program offers grade 10 and 11 high school students the opportunity to experience motive power trades in Nova Scotia.
Students can earn three co-op credits, 300 Apprenticeship hours towards Trade Certification, training experience at Nova Scotia Community College, and a paid summer work placement with an employer. The experience creates career awareness for students and starts them on a path to an apprenticeship. Employers in the Motive Power Industry are financially incentivized to employ students for the summer. Currently offered in 4 regional school districts, high school teachers may arrange class presentations in the fall. Student applications are accepted in the winter.
