Have Your Say on Two New Industry Training Programs

AIA Canada is collaborating with St. Lawrence College to develop two new industry training programs. The first is an electric vehicle (EV) training program targeted at workers already in the automotive aftermarket. The second is an exploration of the automotive trades training program (a pre-apprenticeship) targeted at job seekers.

The curriculum developer will host meetings with industry stakeholders to collect feedback on the proposed curriculum for both training programs. These meetings will be held online.

EV training program

  • Friday, June 17, 2022, 1pm – 2:30pm 

Exploration of the automotive trades training program

  • Monday, June 20, 2022, 1pm – 2:30pm 
  • This program is meant to break the stigma associated with a career in the skilled trades.
  • We are seeking feedback on how to incorporate curriculum into the program that exposes learners to the new types of work that automotive tradespeople do because of advances in vehicle technology.

If you would like to participate in one or both meetings, please contact Erin Chreptyk at  for a copy of the proposed curriculum and meeting details.
