Essential Skills for Success as a Truck and Transport Mechanic (2011)

This document is part of a series prepared by Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) to help apprentices learn how Essential Skills are used on the job and prepare for a career.

In this fact sheet, the authors look at how each of the nine Essential Skills might be used on the job by a truck and transport mechanic.

For example, the skill of numeracy is required to compare the number of hours a truck was idle to the distance it ran to determine the amount of fuel burned. A truck and transport mechanic uses thinking skills to decide which repairs are most important to be done when a driver has only limited time available.
