Hamilton, Ontario -- November 8, 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 the Certificate of Qualification prep course in Burlington, Ontario. The format is four full days. The course runs on two consecutive weekends, starting on Saturday December 3 and continuing on Sunday December 4. The course continues the following weeked on Saturday December 10 and Sunday December 11. The full course requires students to attend for all four days.
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 rebates from the government totaling two-thirds of the course cost.
