Maximize your career opportunities with the Heavy Equipment and Truck and Transport applied certificate program – you’ll get training in two high-demand trades at once.
The 21-week evening program is all about practical learning. In addition to classroom learning, you’ll get hands-on learning by working on different types of equipment. On the heavy duty equipment side, you could work on bulldozers, cranes, graders, loaders or earthmovers. On the truck and transport side, you could work on trucks, buses or highway transport vehicles.
Heavy Equipment and Truck and Transport grads are in high demand, with opportunities in urban, rural and remote areas. Boost your earning power and job opportunities even more by pursuing journeyperson’s certification.
The Heavy Equipment and Truck and Transport applied certificate program is delivered off campus at regional colleges and through Skills Training programming.
Applied certificate programs can give you a head-start on apprenticeship. To learn how to apply your academic credit toward Level 1 of the Heavy Duty Equipment Technician apprenticeship program, contact the Saskatchewan Apprenticeship and Trade Certification Commission (SATCC).
Successful completion of the Heavy Equipment and Truck and Transport applied certificate opens a lot of doors. Look for entry-level jobs with equipment dealerships or with companies in the construction, oil and gas, forestry, mining and transportation sectors.
The First Qualified/First Admitted (FQFA) process is used for the majority of Saskatchewan Polytechnic programs. When we determine that you meet the program's admission requirements, you will be offered admission based on the date you fully qualify for the program. The earlier you provide the appropriate documents and information that qualify you for admission to the next intake, the earlier you might begin your studies. Your application, once qualified, is always considered for the next intake.
Applicants to programs with multiple intakes in an academic year remain in the application pool until the last intake for that academic year has begun. Programs using the FQFA process receive applications year round and maintain an application pool for each academic year. Qualified applicants who are not offered a seat must reapply for the next academic year.
Sponsored programs or programs targeted to specific groups do not accept applications year round or maintain an application pool.
See Admission Processes for more information about this method of admission.

Thanks to the generosity of donors and alumni, Saskatchewan Polytechnic gives away more than $2 million in student awards during the academic year.
Saskatchewan Polytechnic offers student awards for every certificate and diploma program at every campus. You don't have to be a brainiac to receive a student award. Not all student awards are based on marks - some are based on financial need or things like community or volunteer involvement.
