Overview

Program Overview

Apparel Fit Technicians are able to recognize good apparel fit, identify fit problems and correct fit in ready-made garments. They apply ideal fit standards across different body types and fabrics. Students also develop their customer service skills in this program.

Full Description

Students who complete the Apparel Fit Technician program have a unique opportunity to learn valuable skills that are in demand in alteration, retail, bridal, costume and custom fit studios. Graduates acquire the skills to diagnose fit issues in women's and men's ready-made garments, recommend adjustments to correct fit and mark garments for alterations. Working knowledge of customer service and factors such as different fabrics are included to provide a suite of work-ready skills. 

The Apparel Fit Technician program is offered through our School of Fashion and Jewellery and classes take place at our Fashion Exchange (FX), located at 63 Regent Park Blvd. FX is more than a learning lab; it's also a production facility readily accessible to local designers and fashion producers where you will be immersed in day-to-day apparel manufacturing operations and will have the opportunity to network with industry members.
