Automobile Mechanics Program Functional Prerequisites

A person who has reached the age of 18 may be admitted to a program of study leading to a Diploma of Vocational Studies (DEP) on the basis of functional prerequisites. These automobile mechanics program functional prerequisites described for a person who has attained the age of 18 at the start date reported attendance in the professional study program are: the success of the General Development Test (GDT) and obtaining and successful tests relating to specific prerequisites in language of instruction and mathematics, if any.

This table shows the new course codes for common core training (BCF) and the diverse basic training (FBD) required for specific prerequisites in language of instruction and mathematics for the intended program of study. In the context of the new codes during the BCF and FBD are gradual implementation, it is indicated in brackets the old course codes are still valid. The equivalent code during general youth training is also indicated in this table. When a DVS does not require any specific prerequisites in language of instruction or mathematics, a (-) appears in the corresponding cells. Note that the functional prerequisites do not apply for professional specialization certificate programs (ASP).
