About this microcredential

The tuition-free Diesel Exhaust Emission Reduction Systems microcredential course teaches students the latest technologies employed in light- and heavy-duty emission reduction systems and is imperative for the diagnosis and repair of after-treatment systems and for reducing harmful exhaust emissions.

Prerequisites: Registered Apprentices or Red Seal Technicians in any of the following trades: Automotive Service Technician, Heavy Duty Mechanic, Agricultural Equipment Technician, Aircraft Maintenance Journeyperson, Marine and Outdoor Power Equipment Technician, Railway Car Technician, Diesel Engine Mechanic, Recreation Vehicle Service Technician, Collison Repair Technician, Truck and Transport Mechanic, Transport Trailer Mechanic.

What will you learn?

This course provides:

  • Proficiency in emission reduction theory and the tiers of emission control.
  • Understanding of operation, control strategies and diagnostic procedures for diesel after-treatment systems.
  • Knowledge of the fundamentals to diagnose and repair Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) systems, Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) systems, as well as Selective Catalyst Reduction (SCR) systems.

How does this prepare you for the low carbon economy?

The microcredential is imperative for the diagnosis and repair of after-treatment systems resulting in the reduction of harmful exhaust emissions. Emissions systems continue to change due to stringent emission regulations placed by the Government, and training needs to be current to align with the latest updates. While Canada will transition to low-carbon transportation, for the next decade at least Governments, First Nations, and Industry will rely on diesel vehicles and training is imperative to ensure the reduction of emissions while the sector transitions.
