Blainville, Quebec — Skills/Compétences Canada’s (SCC) National Technical Committee for Autobody Repair has appointed Amir Farrokh as the committee’s new chairman.
A technical trainer at Fix Network’s training centre in Blainville, Que., Farrokh will be tasked with developing a testing framework for identifying talented autobody students and apprentices in provincial skills competitions before they go on to compete at the Skills Canada National Competition (SCNC), according to a press release from Fix Network on Tuesday.
“SCNC is an important opportunity for students and apprentices to showcase their superior skills in auto body repair and reflects the Canadian aftermarket industry’s pursuit of operational excellence,” said Farrokh.
“I am keen to be an important part of this initiative and help to enrich the evaluation standards in the competitions.”
Farrokh has worked alongside SCC for a number of years now, assisting in the process of recruiting judges and evaluating qualifications.
Sylvain Seguin, executive vice-president of Fix Network Canada, said “With skilled technicians in high demand, we are always looking for talented people who want to shape their future in various aftermarket trades and Fix Network is recognized as a key enabler of that trend.
“Amir has played a key role in this objective, and we are proud that one of our own has been chosen by SCC to drive excellence in the collision repair segment.”
