Fair Trade: Free Centennial College, Tropicana introductory auto body course to kick off in April

Scarborough, Ontario — If you live in the Toronto area and have always wanted to try your hand at the trade, a new collaborative program between Tropicana Community Services and Centennial College seeks to give prospective auto body technicians a chance to see if collision repair is the right fit, completely free of charge.

Set to run from April to August of this year, Tropicana says this provincially-funded offering of the Auto Body and Collision Damage Repairer 310B Pre-Apprenticeship L-1 program is designed as a stepping stone to apprenticeship for technicians looking to dive right into the trade.

Following the 30-week semester, students will jump straight into a paid work placement that will last from September to November.

Along with the invaluable work experience itself, the program will also provide students with a free toolkit and course materials, a free TTC Presto Pass for use during the program, as well as eligibility to receive Tropicana’s Student Success Scholarship.

The program is open to students between the ages of 18 and 30, are legally entitled to work in Canada, have a Grade 12 diploma or equivalent and can commit to up to 30 weeks of training.

For additional information or to apply, contact Tropicana’s pre-apprenticeship training co-ordinator Suad Dualeh at sdualeh@tropicanaemployment.ca, or (437) 918-9249.

The deadline for applications is March 31.
