Fredericton, New Brunswick — Mark Weeks, regional vice-president for Fix Network, announced that Fix Auto Fredericton location is now Red Seal certified—an important recognition that endorses their superior knowledge of the most complex automotive repair technologies.
“Learning never stops at Fix Auto Fredericton,” said Corey Etheridge, general manager at the Fredericton location. “We take our training and certifications very seriously and want our technicians to have the most superior knowledge and training available. In this regard, the Red Seal certification is an important endorsement that increases our team’s credibility and makes us stand out from the rest.”
Ryan Wilson, the owner of Fix Auto Fredericton and Etheridge, are strong believers in processes that can build credibility for their facility and teams, especially among customers and insurance companies. Investing in advanced repair equipment and skilled technicians have therefore taken priority at the five-year-old facility.
Introduced to assess the skills of tradespeople across Canada, the Red Seal program is developed by the federal government along with the provinces and indicates that the candidate has demonstrated the knowledge required for the national standard in that trade. While not mandatory, the Red Seal endorsement promotes excellence to employers, instills pride in skilled workers, and facilitates labour mobility.
To be certified, candidates must pass a stringent examination process development in cooperation with the regulatory bodies, apprenticeship training and professional certification involves a great deal of time and effort.
Over the past year, Fix Auto Fredericton has been encouraging its team to take the Red Seal examinations. The Red Seal certification, they believe, will give their customers complete peace of mind to know that their vehicles are in the safe hands of the Fix Auto Fredericton Team.
