At the end of 2019 when we looked forward to 2020, none of us knew what a crazy year this would be.

With the advent of COVID, we have changed many of our classes to an online learning format through Zoom.  This was a steep learning curve for the staff but we’ve overcome a lot of the initial hurdles and are happy to report that our groups continue to complete our program and achieve successful outcomes finding employment in the industries of automotive, auto body and heavy duty.

We are proud of our students for also rising to the occasion. From Group 25 completing their final work placement at the start of the year, to our latest arrivals in Group 38, our students continue to impress us with their desire to work hard and find jobs. Thank you for all of your efforts!

We are also happy to welcome our newest employee, Sanmi Adereti, as a Placement Officer finding work placements and employment for our students.

While 2020 didn’t work out the way we expected it to, we still wish our students, graduates, and employer partners Happy Holidays, with wishes to stay safe while celebrating this holiday season.
