Hamilton, Ontario — January 19, 2016 — Collision Industry Information Assistance (CIIA) has designed a new training class to help unlicensed techs to better successfully complete the provincial trades license exam. The new course has been driven by demand from the industry.
“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.
Courses are being offered in Toronto and Oakville. The certification prep course lasts nine nights.
Starts: Monday, January 25, 2016
Courses run Mondays and Thursdays
Starts: Tuesday, February 16, 2016
Courses run Tuesdays and Thursdays
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.
