According to information received from Collision Industry Information Assistance (CIIA) program chair John Norris, if your shop employs a third-year (advanced level) Auto Body and Collision Damage Repairer apprentice, or an apprentice who has attempted but failed the Ontario Certificate of Qualification exam in the past, Mohawk College, Stoney Creek campus is offering a FREE 30 hour training course that will provide an overview of your training and update assistance in order to help you successfully complete your trades license exam. The program start date has been delayed one week from the original schedule, with new start dates now Feb.5 - Mar.7, from 4:00-7:00 p.m.
Those apprentices or challengers who do not meet these qualifications should check with their local MTCU office with a request to attend. Those that qualify can immediately register with the College.
The Collision Industry Information Assistance informs Bodyshop Magazine that it was only just advised of this 30-hour class running on Tuesday. There is little time to register. The classes are held at the Mohawk College Stoney Creek campus, on Tuesday and Thursday evenings.
Says Norris, "We would urge those employees in your shop that can qualify for this training to take advantage of this free offer from the province and Mohawk College."
