Toronto, Ontario -- October 28, 2013 -- AYCE Employment Services has announced it will hold its first Career Path â€“ Auto Body Fair on November 8 at the Radisson Hotel at 55 Hallcrown Place in Toronto, Ont.
â€œThis will be an excellent opportunity for collision repair facilities to hire young, enthusiastic people and help groom them into an apprenticeship,â€ says Marc Tremblay, Coordinator, Pre-apprenticeship Training Program for AYCE. â€œAll hired candidates will receive WHMIS and VOC Training as well as an introduction to estimating and some I-CAR Training.â€
Tremblay says hired candidates will receive other support as well, such as coveralls, safety boots, subsidized transit and more.
â€œParticipating collision repair facilities will receive generous subsidies that definitely help to offset the cost of training,â€ he says.
The major sponsors of the AYCE Pre-apprenticeship program are Sherwin-Williams, I-CAR, Brimell Group Paint & Collision Center ~ CSN and MAACO Canada.
