Training, Scholarships and Apprenticeship

Please be advised that we have moved to a new system. If you have created an account in the past, you will be required to create a NEW account in order to apply for a job.

Apprenticeship program

We have put in place a 4-year training program for apprentice technicians designed for mechanics who have already received basic mechanic training for heavy equipment.

In addition to training on Caterpillar heavy equipment or generators, the program supports apprentices throughout the certification process. They can complete both their training and development while working at Toromont Cat. With their technician’s certificate in hand, they will enjoy more career opportunities – in the shop, at worksites or on rotation – and can even migrate to another field such as training, sales or management if that is what they wish to do.

The apprenticeship program gives participants access to:

  • A mixed learning model that offers both theoretical and hands-on experience
  • Heavy equipment or generator technician’s certification
  • A certified technician job at Toromont Cat
  • Many career opportunities across the country
  • A 2-year interest-free loan to get outfitted with tools
