Working Welding Westward: I-CAR Canada partners with the Canadian Welding Bureau to increase welding training opportunities across Canada

Toronto, Ontario – In a recent announcement, I-CAR Canada has shared their new partnership with the Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB Group) to help increase welding training opportunities across Canada. 

Through this partnership, CWB will lend the use of its training facilities in Milton, Ontario and Nisku, Alberta while I-CAR Canada will offer its nationwide training instructors. 

The goal of this initiative is to ensure that welding training from I-CAR Canada will be accessible to all Canadians in a timely manner. 

Within the coming months, CWB training instructors will be travelling across the country training technicians in-shop with the hope of offering knowledge to a wider range of Canadian collision shops in both rural and urban areas. 

“This is an incredible opportunity to provide I-CAR welding training to rural, sometimes inaccessible, areas of Canada,” Stuart Klein, Vice President of Collision Programs at AIA Canada said. “Working with the CWB Group at these facilities and through their travelling instructors will ensure that all Canadian collision sector businesses, regardless of their location, will have access to the training they need to safely repair vehicles.” 

Similarly, Bill Gwynne, Vice-President, of Industry Solutions at the CWB Group stated that, “at CWB Group, we’re committed to enhancing the skills of Canada’s welding community. Partnering with I-CAR Canada allows us to combine our robust training infrastructure with their specialized curriculum, ensuring a brighter, safer future for the collision industry. Together, we’re reaching every corner of Canada.” 

According to the I-CAR training catalogue, the next welding training opportunity will occur on October 6 at CARSTAR Thunder Bay.
