Hamilton, Ontario — July 1, 2016 — Collision Industry Information Assistance (CIIA) has scheduled two new classes to help unlicensed techs successfully complete Ontario’s provincial trades license exam.
“The impact of trades license enforcement by the Ontario College of Trades and the fact that most of the exam challengers failed the trades exam on their first try has generated a significant interest in the courses,” says John Norris, Executive Director of CIIA.
CIIA is currently offering Certificate of Qualification prep courses in Toronto and Burlington. The course in Burlington runs over four days, with classes taking place on weekends. The first portion of the class takes place July 9 and 10. The second portion runs the weekend of July 16 and 17.
The Toronto Certificate of Qualification prep course starts on September 12 and runs every Monday and Wednesday for a total of nine nights.
The course cost is $1,000, plus HST, for non-members of CIIA and $800, plus HST, for CIIA members. According to CIIA, most employers who have employees attending the class are eligible for training fee rebate from government totaling two-thirds of the course cost.
