Toronto, Ontario -- October 28, 2013 -- AYCE Employment Services has announced it will hold its first Career Path – Auto Body Fair on November 8 at the Radisson Hotel at 55 Hallcrown Place in Toronto, Ont. 

“This will be an excellent opportunity for collision repair facilities to hire young, enthusiastic people and help groom them into an apprenticeship,” says Marc Tremblay, Coordinator, Pre-apprenticeship Training Program for AYCE. “All hired candidates will receive WHMIS and VOC Training as well as an introduction to estimating and some I-CAR Training.”
 
Tremblay says hired candidates will receive other support as well, such as coveralls, safety boots, subsidized transit and more. 
 
“Participating collision repair facilities will receive generous subsidies that definitely help to offset the cost of training,” he says. 
 
The major sponsors of the AYCE Pre-apprenticeship program are Sherwin-Williams, I-CAR, Brimell Group Paint & Collision Center ~ CSN and MAACO Canada.

Brimell Group Paint & Collision Center ~ CSN have provided training facilities and equipment for the program since its inception and MAACO Canada runs the annual “MAACO Day” event and provides students with 3M gear.
 
There is no charge to book a booth at the Career Path – Auto Body Fair, but space is limited. The final deadline for registration is Wednesday November 6.
