The Apprenticeship Heavy Duty Equipment Technician (HDET) Program is designed to train apprentices to diagnose, test, service and perform preventative maintenance on: hydraulic, air, and electric braking systems; trailer systems and components; electrical circuits, lighting and electronic control systems and hydraulic systems. Due to the nature of work of the HDET, it is imperative that safety be taught on a continuous basis throughout this program.

This program outline is based on the NWT/Alberta Heavy Duty Equipment Technician Apprenticeship Course Outline (2007) issued by the Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT).

The goal of apprenticeship training is to develop competent journeypersons through a combination of on-the-job and technical training.

The HDET Program at Aurora College provides the first of four levels of technical training.
