TORONTO, Ont. – Centennial College will launch the Motive Power Partsperson apprenticeship program, the first of its kind to be offered in Ontario. The program is designed to help meet the need for well-trained auto parts specialists.

The 20-week, 600-hour apprenticeship prepares students to merchandise auto, truck and heavy- equipment parts using up-to-date inventory control and other popular industry software. Students receive training in applied work practices, inventory management, component technology and customer support and communications.

There is no tuition fee for the apprenticeship and students may receive income support while attending classes if they are eligible for Employment Insurance. During the course of the apprenticeship, students are expected to find an employer to sponsor them.

Pending government approval, the program may begin as early as February 28. The 20-week course can be followed by up to three years of paid on-the-job training.

The program will be held at Centennial’s Ashtonbee Campus in Scarborough. For more information, call 416-289-7310 or visit Centennial College’s web site at www.cencol.on.ca/transportation.n
