In PT 30, you will learn about parts sourcing, pricing, tracking, and shipping as well as the industry and career opportunities available to Parts Technicians. This course consists of 50 hours of online theory, 40 hours of a work placement* at a local ag equipment dealership, and ~ 10-hours of optional PT Boot Camp at Saskatchewan Polytechnic. *If you choose not to attend boot camp, you simply complete all 50 hours at the work placement.
Given the seasonal nature of the ag industry, this course is only offered in semester one, with 50 hours of course theory to be completed from September to mid-November and then 50 hours of work placement from mid-November to the end of the semester.
Thanks to the generous support of local agricultural equipment dealerships across the province, the $500 course fee is FREE of charge. Parts Technician 30L requires a work placement, therefore, scheduled work site visits by a supervising teacher from the student’s local school division are also required.

This course will not count as a PAA credit on your transcripts. This is a Locally Determined Option course and upon completion will count as a 30 level elective credit.
