Industrial Drafting

1800 hours – 60 weeks- Offered at CDC Pont-Viau 

Next cohort begins June 3, 2019

This field of study is among the occupations currently in highest demand in the province!!


Program objectives

To develop the skills necessary to determine the information to include on drawings, such as: solve problems related to industrial drafting, taking and interpreting measurements; develop the skills necessary to understand manufacturing, such as: interpreting technical information related to materials and manufacturing processes, illustrating the arrangement of components and powertrain systems; develop the skills necessary to interpret, carry out, and correct drawings and to produce sketches, to use specialized functions of a computer-aided drafting program, to produce detail drawings of mechanical components, assembly, mechanisms, piping and circuit diagrams, making three-dimensional drawings and designing a simple technical object; develop the necessary skills for multi-disciplinary teamwork and to integrate into school and work life.

Admission conditions

To be eligible for admission to this program, candidates must meet one of the following requirements:

Persons holding a Secondary School Diploma or its recognized equivalent, for example, an Attestation of Equivalence of Secondary V studies, or a postsecondary diploma such as the Diploma of College Studies or a Bachelor’s degree
Persons who are at least 16 years of age on September 30 of the school year in which their training is to begin and have earned the Secondary IV credits in language of instruction, second language and mathematics in the programs of study established by the Minister, or have been granted recognition for equivalent learning
Persons who are at least 18 years of age upon entry into the program and have the following functional prerequisites: the successful completion of the General Development Test (see the following table), or recognition of equivalent learning
Persons who have obtained Secondary III credits in language of instruction, second language and mathematics in programs established by the Minister are required to pursue general education courses, concurrently with their vocational training, in order to obtain the Secondary IV credits they lack in language of instruction, second language and mathematics in programs established by the Minister.

Drafting technologists and technicians (2253)

Functional prerequisites

A person who has reached the age of 18 can be admitted to a program of study leading to a Diploma of vocational studies (DVS) based on functional prerequisites. These prerequisites, in place for those aged at least 18 years at the start date declared for the vocational training program, are: successful completion of the general development test (GDT) and obtaining and passing the tests relative to the specific prerequisites in the language of instruction and mathematics, if applicable.

This table indicates the new course codes for common core basic education (CCBE) and diversified basic education (DBE) required for the specific prerequisites in language of instruction and mathematics for the targeted program of study. In the cases where the new course codes for the CCBE and the DBE are in progressive implementation, the old codes are indicated in parenthesis and are still valid. The equivalent course codes in basic education in the youth sector are also indicated in the table. When a DVS does not require any specific prerequisites in language of instruction or in mathematics, a (-) will be displayed in the appropriate field. Please note that the functional prerequisites do not apply to attestation of vocational specialty (AVS) programs.
