Hamilton, Ontario -- June 9, 2011 -- Graduates of the Centennial College Autobody techniques program have just graduated and are eager to show employers in the autobody, collision repair and auto refinishing industries, how they can help shops repair vehicles, says CIIA.
The 35 graduating students are just finished their techniques program, a longer program than offered in initial apprenticeship and have paid for their training themselves. Many employers feel that this makes these graduates more motivated to find a good job in the industry and prove what they can do, CIIA notes.
A number of grants and incentives are available including tax credits of up to $2000 upon hiring and a $10,000 apprenticeship tax credit when hiring any of these graduates as apprentices. Each apprentice would also qualify for an $800 tool loan.
