Toronto, Ontario -- August 14, 2017 -- Collision Industry Information Assistance (CIIA) has scheduled four new classes to help unlicensed techs successfully complete Ontario’s provincial trades license exam.

CIIA will offer the Certificate of Qualification prep course in London, Toronto, Ottawa and Vaughan/Belleville. The format is four full days. Locations and details have yet to be announced for the London and Vaughan/Belleville classes.

The course in Ottawa runs on two consecutive weekends, starting on Saturday, November 4 and continuing on Sunday November 5. The course continues the following weekend on Saturday November 11 and Sunday November 12. The course requires students to attend for all four days. The Toronto course runs on Saturday September 9, Sunday September 10, and the following weekend of Saturday September 16 and Sunday September 17. Attendance at all four days is required.

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.
