Golf and Turf Equipment Mechanic

OCAS Program Code K105 - Two Semesters (30 Weeks, beginning in September)

The Golf and Turf Equipment Mechanic program is designed to train students in the use, service, and repair of the various types of powered equipment used in the golf, turf, landscaping, and small equipment rental industries.

The ever increasing sophistication of the wide variety of specialized equipment found in these areas, continue to create a demand for skilled, well trained individuals pursuing interesting and challenging careers. Students will acquire knowledge and skills which will allow them to understand the mechanics of gas and diesel powered equipment, setup, diagnose, and perform routine service and repair work, and be familiar with basic principles of turf grass management.


The Ontario Ministry of Education and Training, Apprenticeship Branch is currently reviewing the in-school curriculum requirements for Small Engine and Golf Equipment Mechanic apprentice mechanic programs. The content of the Golf and Turf Equipment Mechanic program is drawn from these curricula, as well as the Farm and Heavy Duty Mechanic apprenticeship programs, and will be adjusted to address Ministry standards, to allow maximum credits towards apprenticeship in appropriate trades.
