he climb is never easy; especially when it feels like the mountain you’re ascending was never meant for you. This is exactly how Cecile Bukmeier, today an accomplished National Skills Champion, teacher at Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) and skilled autobody technician felt when she first stepped onto the Everest that is collision repair. “I was always drawn to the auto trades. My dad was a mechanic, and when I was a kid I would help him with jobs,” Bukmeier fondly recalled, when recounting her first glimpses into the world of collision repair. When she was fifteen years old, she started working for a shop every day after school for twoand-a-half hours through a program at her school. Despite the program’s initiatives to help students learn more about prospective trades, she found herself gaining no knowledge at all.

Bukmeier hopes to use her position to help female students deal with challenges uniquely encountered by women working in the industry.

“When I first came in to work, the manager was surprised to see me,” said Bukmeier. “He told me he usually didn’t get women in the shop, and offered a reception job instead.” She persisted, and managed to get a job in the shop regardless. However, Bukmeier worked for nine months and never touched a vehicle once. She didn’t even wash one. “I thought maybe this wasn’t for me,” Bukmeier recalled. She then, after completing that job, spent about eight months searching for a new place of employment. “I would get turned down over and over again,” she said. The shops she visited would tell her they didn’t have enough funds to take on a new hire, or didn’t have the time to train her. Eventually, she landed an interview with Shield Autobody, an independent shop owned by Jeff Hicks. “I was hopeful, but I wasn’t sure if he would be interested because Jeff wouldn’t have known I was a girl until I came for the interview. My name is pretty gender neutral. I assumed he thought I was a boy.”

When Bukmeier first started applying for autobody repair technician jobs, she would get turned town “over and over again.”

students who’ve inspired her. “There’s nothing like hearing a student say, ‘I never thought I could do this, and now I can.’ They’re so ecstatic about the work they do. Just seeing them begin to understand certain things and be open to learning, it’s so rewarding.” Bukmeier wants to give young female students the opportunity to do something she never got to do—that is, talk to other women about their struggles, challenges and questions as young women trying to get a start in this industry. “There weren’t a lot of other females for me to talk to early on, and I want to be able to give that to my students,” said Bukmeier. With Bukmeier’s rich experience in working in the industry, she can help her female students prepare for unique issues they may encounter, such as dealing with being asked whether they are physically capable of doing particular jobs, or not receiving the same opportunities as their male colleagues. Stephanie Fuhrer, student engagement facilitator and women in technology and trades coordinator at NAIT, pointed out how Bukmeier contributes to closing the gender gap, and how other teachers can start to do this. “Increasing knowledge when they are in junior and senior high school can show [students] how fun and rewarding a career

It didn’t matter: Bukmeier was offered the job, and she began to learn autobody techniques such as prep and detailing. “I made so many mistakes in those first six months,” she said. That’s natural when starting out, but Bukmeier got better quickly. Many more winding roads, carved out by seeking out new challenges and opportunities led Bukmeier to where she is today: teaching at NAIT. It should be noted that she is the first female autobody teacher at the school. “It’s such a great opportunity to be in my position,” she said. What she aspires to do with this opportunity is simple: be a positive role model and inspire her students. She wants to be able to give every student she has an opportunity to grow and prove themselves, something that she had to work so hard to be able to do herself. No person who is passionate, or dedicated to something should be denied the opportunity to try, is a mindset Bukmeier lives by. “I want to show students, men and women both, that by working hard, you can do whatever you want in a trade—you can take it as far as you want. Nothing is impossible to achieve, you just need time and practice,” she said, also mentioning the

in the trades and technologies can be. Witnessing Cecile in the class, the love of her trade and watching her work really helps young girls see themselves in that role,” said Fuhrer. With the opportunity to inspire and mould the brains of youth that comes along with teaching, Bukmeier works to be a positive role model and demonstrate that choosing a career in the trades is not a “back up option.” There are multiple types of intelligence, and they’re all equally valuable. “There are so many opportunities beyond university,” Bukmeier said. “Youth, as well as their parents, need to know that working in the trades is a viable career option. I think that in the media, tradespeople are portrayed as dumb or not capable. But some of the smartest people I know are in the trades.” Hilary Noack is the owner of Ink and Iron, an all-women bodyshop in Toronto, and a former autobody instructor at Centennial College. She too sees a

real value to bringing female autobody teachers into schools. “It’s good for female technicians going through the program to see other women who have gone through the same thing, and to have good female role models in the industry,” she said.

Bukmeier is still on the great climb, and with her she is bringing the students she inspires every day, inside and outside the classroom. Dedicated teachers like Bukmeier are helping show that not only is the automotive industry exciting and rewarding, but that it is a career worth fighting for.

Manufacturer Specific Training

I

t seems likely that car manufacturers have the biggest total presence when we look at all of the companies and organizations making up the global automotive claims economy. Even a relatively small car company is a massive undertaking, and big car manufacturers are some of the largest companies in the world. For a long time, it didn’t seem like these giants were really paying much attention to the collision repair industry, even down to the dealership level. Collision repairers were left to improve their own operations. But then, the wheel turned. Today we’re seeing the growth of dealer-only collision networks and the OEMs themselves have either rolled out their own certification and recognition programs or will likely do so in the near future. It was the luxury brands that started the trend towards certifying repair centres. The reasoning was clear: high-tech cars needed high-tech repairs. While those brands are constantly pushing ahead, many of the mass-market manufacturers now offer features that also demand this high-tech approach. Repairers need as much information about the OEMs as they can get, and not just on repair procedures. The relationship is only going to get closer. Below you will find information on both general websites and the technical information sites maintained by each company. Most of the technical information sites are only open to fee-paying subscribers. FIAT

ACCREDITATION PROGRAMS NAVIGATING THE WATERS OF INDEPENDENT AND THIRD-PARTY ACCREDITATION

Y

ACCREDITATION

ou know you’ve got great staff that do quality work, but can you prove it? Providing the evidence that your shop is up-to-date is the essential purpose of any independent third-party accreditation program. An OEM certification or recognition program tells the world that you are qualified to repair a particular company’s vehicles. In theory, third-party accreditation programs show exactly what you’re capable of, regardless of make and model. We’ve seen the rise of these programs fairly recently in the Canadian collision repair space. Below we’ve compiled information on four of the programs that are currently available.

CCIAP The Canadian Collision Industry Accreditation Program (CCIAP) is administered by AIA Canada, the same asso ciation that administers I-CAR Canada and the Canadian Collision Industry Forum (CCIF). The CCIAP offers two levels of accreditation. The first is “Core,” which re q u i re s t h e s h o p t o successfully demonstrate compliance with both the Business Operations and the Structural Repair Capabilities requirements. A complete list is available at cciap.ca. The Business Operations requirements deal with ensuring your shop has the right insurance,

is in compliance with regulations and hits certain marks in regards to customer-facing facilities such as the waiting room and bathroom.

cciap.ca The Structural Repair C apabilities section deals primarily with training and equipment. On the training side, the facility must either be I-CAR Gold Class or Gold Class in Progress, with Gold

Class achieved by the first accreditation renewal date. The equipment list is considerably longer. It includes electronic 3-D measuring capability, access to OEM procedures, an above ground lift and much more. The CCIAP “Advanced” accreditation is optional. It requires the shop to successfully demonstrate compliancy with ever y guideline for “C ore,” plus several other requirements. The entire list is too long to replicate here, but a lot of it focuses on ensuring your shop has the equipment and training needed for aluminum repairs.

Certified Collision Repair The Certified Collision Repair (CCR) program is administered by the Automotive Retailers Association (ARA) of British Columbia. In brief, the program certifies collision repair service providers who have demonstrated commitment to service excellence through investment and training to achieve the highest levels of industry standards. The program differentiates industry members through the use of Silver, Gold, and Gold Plus level identifiers. It leads consumers to those facilities that have achieved the highest levels of industry standards for quality, safety, and service for the repair of a collision-damaged vehicle.

According to ARA of BC, the CCR program is also part of a national solution to establish and

ara.bc.ca/certified-colli sion-repair-program

publicize the repairer’s credentials as a world-leading repair facility and their ability to meet the requirements of industry partners and their customers. It ensures that customers receive the best in collision repair

by recognizing facilities that are qualified, competent, and fit to complete repairs on the complex vehicles of today and the future. The ARA and the AIA have synchronized their programs through a memorandum of understanding so that industry members who adopt either CCR or CCIAP will be recognized on both websites as having achieved the levels of equipment and training in-line with the accreditation needs of OEM certification programs. According to AR A, b oth of these programs have been developed to complement the OEM certification programs, not compete with them.

Certified Collision Care

18 TRAINING D I R E C T O RY

2018

Certified Collision Care is the Canadian arm of Assured Performance Network, an organization headquartered in Laguna Hills, California. The organization also administers several OEM collision certification programs. Becoming a “Certified Collision Care Provider” currently certifies the facility with FCA, Ford and Nissan. The program’s requirements are spelled out in detail on their website under the “Requirements” tab. The

certifiedcollisioncare.ca basic requirements are broadly similar to that of CCIAP and CCR, split into both General Business Requirements and General Technical Repair Capability.

From there, Certified Collision Care also looks in Advanced Material Repair Technical Capabilities. These are split into three sections: Steel/Ferrous Material Technical Repair Capability Composite Material Technical Repair Capability (which is optional) A l u m i nu m R e p a i r C ap a b l e Requirements or Non-Ferrous Required for Ford Certification Canada.

VeriFacts Automotive VeriFacts Automotive offers its Verified Quality (VQ) shop status program. To become VQ, the shop must first undergo a “Quality Calibration” to see precisely where the shop is in regards to various items of equipment, training and repair quality. VeriFacts provides feedback to the shop, possibly with a list of items to improve. A VeriFacts coach then returns to the shop for unannounced monthly visits.

verifactsauto.com After each monthly visit, a report of the coach’s feedback will be delivered to shop management. Once a shop has demonstrated that they perform

the proper repairs based on that feedback, a shop will be invited to become a VQ shop. It takes a minimum of two monthly visits for a shop to achieve VQ status. A statement from VeriFacts Automotive says there are some equipment requirements for shops to participate in its VQ program, based on specification, but the most important requirement is to have a culture of quality that leads to correct and safe repairs.

retty incredible and unexpected things can happen in your life. “Incredible,” and “unexpected” sum up Ashley Weber’s experiences over the past two years, ever since she found herself holding the Gold medal for Auto Body Painting at Manitoba Skills, 2016. Since then, she has travelled to Abu Dhabi to compete at the WorldSkills competition, where she finished 15th out of 20. We sat down with Weber, to get some insight on her growth, inspirations and challenges throughout her journey with Skills Canada and WorldSkills.

Training Directory: How has your experience with Skills Canada and WorldSkills enriched your life, personally and professionally? Ashley Weber: Professionally, it has put me very far ahead in my career. I now know things that I wouldn’t have known for another three or four years. The biggest thing personally is that it has given me a lot of confidence because I’m travelling all over Canada and to different places like Australia and Abu Dhabi, and I’m learning a lot and meeting lots of new people. TD: How do you feel about the state of the the competition right now? AW: The trip is nerve-wracking. There are 26 other competitors, and we’re all at similar skill levels, so it’s up in the

air—it’s a matter of who is going to do that one little thing just a little better. TD: How are you preparing for the competition? AW: I work at Urban Autobody in Winnipeg right now, so every day is training for me. I paint all day, and I train for three to four hours once a week after work with my trainer, Dan Labossiere, focusing on things I wouldn’t normally do. My trainer and I also work at my high school sometimes, so I’m not always training at work. TD: What techniques do you focus on in your training after work? AW: I work on things like graphic design, mixing colours from scratch without a scale, and painting each side of a car door different colours at the same time. For the

graphic design, I am given a picture of a design with all sorts of dimensions and measurements on it. I have to take what is given to me and use my knowledge to transfer it onto a panel of a vehicle, like a door, fender or hood. All the designs use up to five colours and include a decal that has to be applied as well. I’m feeling least confident about mixing colours, so that’s what I’ve mostly been working on lately. At the beginning of my training I focused on graphic design, because I had never done that before. TD: What have been your biggest challenges throughout this experience? AW: The biggest challenge has been confidence. Sometimes when I’m working I’ll feel like I have no idea what I’m doing, even though I do know how to do what I’m doing. Finding time to


not only work on skills but to also do other things in my life has been hard, too. TD: Why did you choose the collision repair path? What are the experiences or people that have influenced you? AW: My interest in cars came from my parents. I was pretty much born into cars as my parents still have a collector’s car to this day, which led me to having my own. Along with my family’s interests and hobbies, I was given the option to take vocations at my high school at Kildonan East Collegiate, where I took autobody and carpentry. After my first year, I had to choose a major, and it was a toss up between automotive and autobody. I chose autobody because it was more me,and I already did autobody at home with my dad. After that, it’s all pretty much history and I knew this is was I wanted to do for the rest of my life. TD: What are your objectives or plans for the future? AW: After WorldSkills, I’ll mainly be focused on getting my Red Seal. I’m a Level 2, and

Ashley’s interest in autobody came from her parents. “I was pretty much born into cars,” she said.

I should be graduating in 2019. I don’t have any goals for the long-term right now because I want to keep doors open and wait to see what’s offered to me. TD: Was there anyone who was vital to getting you to where you are today, through encouragement or inspiration?

AW: My local trainer, Dan Labossiere. I would have never gotten to where I am today if he hadn’t dragged me out of bed and driven me to that first competition. He was also my high school teacher for three years in autobody, and I’m very glad that he is in this part of my life now.

he Red Seal Program, formally known as the Interprovincial Standards Red Seal Program, was established in 1966 to make it easier for skilled tradespeople to find jobs anywhere in Canada. Through this program, apprentices who have completed their training and certified journeypersons, can obtain a “Red Seal” endorsement on their Certificates of Qualification and Apprenticeship by successfully completing an Interprovincial Standards Examination. The “Red Seal” allows qualified tradespersons to practice the trade in any province or territory in Canada where the trade is designated without having to write further examinations. Both Motor Vehicle Body Repairer (Metal and Paint) and Automotive Painter are among the 45 designated Red Seal trades, meaning that any certified collision repair professional can challenge the Red Seal exam in order to qualify to work in all provinces.

MAKING IT WORK WorldSkills was no walk in the park, but the best things aren’t easy BY BILL SPEED

T

he WorldSkills 2017 Abu Dhabi Auto Body competitions have completed, and the results are in.

Canadian Auto Body competitor Vyolaine Dujmovic placed 18th out of 22, and Canadian Car Painting competitor Ashley Weber placed 15th out of 20. This was my first time involved in a WorldSkills competition as an expert and it, unfortunately, will go down in history as one of the most challenging competitions to date. The challenges were twofold, one side being logistics and the other, competing against the best in the world. Despite all the logistical issues, we did pull off a great competition and I don’t believe the competitors were any the wiser of the issues we had. Everything seemed to be going great before leaving for Abu Dhabi. The test projects had been decided on and equipment, parts and materials were chosen. But when we arrived, we discovered things had changed. The parts were not available for one project, and other materials and parts had not arrived yet. Being in the Middle East, everything had to be brought in. Think about 40 plus competitions, 1,300 competitors, lodging, food, set up, etc. A logistical nightmare. Our group of 23 country experts, including our Skills Manager, Chief Expert, Deputy Chief Expert and Workshop Supervisor, to name a few, worked tirelessly for five days to have a professional world class competition, despite our hurdles. After 25+ years of being involved in Skills Competitions, this was by far the most difficult one I have experienced. We had to have 23 identical workstations complete with equipment, parts and materials—luckily,

Car-O-liner, a huge corporate sponsor of this event, did an exemplary job of set up. Go to WorldSkills.org to search out the other major supporters of this and other Skills events. They deserve our support. The way some other countries train compared to us can be quite different. A number of the competitors train full time for up to three years, and many go to multiple competitions in other countries in

stomach ache. He took some pain medication and continued working to the end of the day. That night, he was taken to the hospital where he was found to have appendicitis. He must have been in tremendous pain on that second day but fought through it. Fortunately he was able to have surgery and is now recovering. Obviously, competing with appendicitis is not something we would condone but competitors pushing themselves to be their best, despite the challenges placed before them, is exactly what they train for. What I witnessed during four days of gruelling competition, was a group of young people who have a passion for an industry that has served many of us well over the years. Their passion is good for the industry and should be supported wherever possible. I personally learned probably as much as our competitors about what it means to compete at the world level. I learned how tough the marking is to separate the Gold, Silver and Bronze medalists. I’ve gained some insight on how to better prepare the competitor who will be chosen this spring at the Canadian Skills competition in Edmonton, to compete in Kazan, Russia in 2019. Mention WorldSkills to your apprentices. They could be Canada’s next competitor.

THEY COULD BE CANADA’S NEXT COMPETITOR. preparation. Financial support for training is also much larger in some countries. Canada has competitors that work full time, have financial responsibilities and have to find time to train as well. It is a difficult road to travel. The competitors, trainers and experts do this all on a volunteer basis. We give back to the competitors our knowledge and experience so that they can work toward being their best. Although our results this year in Auto Body and Car painting were not what we would have liked to see, our competitors did their best against the best in the world. In the competitions, competitors truly pushed themselves to their best. We had a competitor from India who, on the second day of competition, was complaining of a

un by the Automotive Industries Association of Canada (AIA), I-CAR Canada is a training and recognition program designed to help collision repair specialists update their skills. With courses available in both English and French and accommodations made to allow for distance learning, I-CAR is designed to be accessible to all industry professionals. From ensuring a shop is up-to-date with the latest know-how, to encouraging that staff training be cohesive and relevant, the benefits are immense for owners and industry tradespeople. A variety of course formats to fit your shop’s needs, comprehensive content relates to the industry directly and the recognition that comes with I-CAR training is comprehensive. Additionally, I-CAR recognition is a requirement for many shop certification programs. I-CAR recognition comes in two distinct flavours: Platinum for technicians and Gold for shops. For a technician to achieve Platinum recognition, they must complete all of the I-CAR courses for their specific role, including in some cases a welding qualification. The recognition is maintained by completing six hours of I-CAR sanctioned training annually. Gold-level is broken into two stages: Gold Class in Progress and Gold Class. Gold Class in Progress requires shops to train all technicians in the I-CAR approved six hours of training, with at least three hours designated to the individual technician’s specific roles. To complete

I-CAR recognition comes in two distinct flavours: Platinum for technicians and Gold for shops.

the Gold Class accreditation shops are required to have at least one tech who has achieved Platinum recognition in each of the four required roles in their employ: non-structural technician, steel structural technician, refinish technician and estimator. These qualifications are reviewed annually so shops can maintain their Gold Class status. I-CAR offers courses through three different instruction methods. Independent learning courses can be completed anywhere, as long as you have access to a computer with an Internet connection. Evaluations come in the form of online tests, for which participants have three attempts to complete. Students are given a maximum of 90 days to complete the course. Webinar courses are also offered online, but at a specific time through an instructor who will broadcast live. When the instruction broadcast has ended, users can login to their I-CAR Canada accounts online to complete the mandatory evaluations.

Live classes are offered in-person at a specific time and location. Participants must register prior to the beginning of the course and be aware of maximum attendee capacities. I-CAR’s Vehicle and Technology Specific Training program is designed to keep repair shops up-to-date with the newest technologies in the industry. I-CAR is constantly developing new courses for this training program. October of 2017 saw the addition of nine new courses to the vehicle and technology specific training course catalogue: Camera Calibration, Inspection, and Initialization Requirements. Calibration Requirements for Blind Spot and Parking Assist Systems. Vehicle Technology Trends 2018. General Motors (GM) Company Collision Repair Overview. Understanding Volkswagen Collision Repair. Steering Angle Sensor Overview and Diagnostics. Understanding Volvo Collision Repair. Using Vehicle Maker Repair Procedures. Windshields and Advanced Driver Assist Systems (ADAS).

EDUCATOR INSIGHT

CHECK IT TWICE Lists can be a big help in staying organized BY CECILE BUKMEIER

W

e have all had one of those days where everything seems to go by like a blur. By the end of the day, you can barely remember the sequence of repairs you made throughout it. This speaks loudly to those working in a bodyshop on a Friday afternoon. During the morning meeting, the manager points out how important it is to complete a list of jobs so clients can get their vehicles back for the weekend. These days, it can become very clear who is contributing to the wellbeing of the business and who is simply there for a paycheque. The back of the shop has to run like a well-oiled machine, with all the parts working together to tackle the tasks at hand. These are the days where if something does go sideways, it runs right off the track and into the wall. The most careless mistakes are made during these hours­—the type of errors that should not be made, but somehow slip through the line of sight and cause a break in the chain. Everyday tasks can seem routine or automatic, but on the busy days routine seems to speed up and it becomes easier to miss or skip-over small tasks. A common mistake for painters is neglecting to create a spray out card for new bumpers. With the variations of the colours and paint manufacturers used today, it is important to evaluate the colour selected once the painter begins to paint. The paint manufacturer’s colour decks are only a starting point. Speed, distance and pressure vary with each painter. Relying on the accuracy of the mix is not always sufficient. Failing to double check the colour can lead to a mismatch and a costly redo. Yet, many painters get loaded with the tasks of a busy day and skip over the five-minute step of double-checking their colour. Implementing a checklist can help to curb skipping out on tasks. There are many versions that are available through paint or repair material manufacturers’ websites. A common term for them is SOPs

(standard operating procedures). None are completely perfect, but they can be a great starting point to help build a customized repair plan for you, your team and your shop. These plans can be tailored to specific repair tasks or serve as a general overview that blankets many tasks. So, who is responsible for creating a plan? Depending on who you ask, I am sure you will get many conflicting answers. I believe a technician who cares about their craft will have a tailored checklist for themselves. Working with the team that is responsible for a particular repair area in the shop, a sufficient checklist can be created and passed along to new technicians. Checklists can be tremendous assets on busy days. They take the guess work out of the repair and help a novice technician who may be unsure of how to complete a specific task. I recommend including a spot in your checklist to have a breather and look at the repair with a clear head. If you can time a break before you do a final check, it could allow you to see something that you missed along the way. Changing tasks at these “check points” can even help with fatigue and give you a fresh set of eyes to look over the repair before it continues down the line. As important as it is to push completed repairs through the shop, it is more important to make sure that you are not only following a successful repair procedure for the task at hand, but you are also paying attention to the little details. A small pinhole or coarse sandscratch could really ruin your Cecile Bukmeier is an autobody day if you are too instructor at the Northern rushed to take a Alberta Institute of Technology. few minutes and You can email her at CECILEB@nait.ca. pay attention to the job at hand.

THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT Emilie Duguay always knew that she wanted to go into the trades, though it wasn’t until near the end of high school when she discovered collision repair as a career option. It was a choice that would result in Duguay becoming the first woman to complete the Automotive Paint and Work program at The Collège communautaire du Nouveau-Brunswick (CCNB), Bathurst. Soon after, she would be employed at CSNDana’s Collision Center, where she has since worked for four years. Duguay is striving to grow personally and professionally. “I like to learn as much as I can about this industry. I want to learn about estimating next.” She noted that working has shaped her skills and abilities in ways that bleed into all aspects of her life. “Through working at CSN-Dana’s I’ve become more organized, patient and my work ethic is stronger. Even when I’m home doing chores, I think to myself ‘how can I make this more efficient?” She has come a long way, from being an uncertain high school student to a thriving collision repair technician—but achieving any goal she sets her eyes on, despite its difficulties and demands, is clearly sown right into her personality. “I don’t care what other people think, if I want to do something then I’ll do it. That’s just who I am.” For most people, finding a lifelong career in the modern climate can of itself be a strange journey. It’s never an easy road to find your passion. For Lorne Jackson, that road took him from freezing temperatures and unrewarding work, to the satisfying and passionate world of collision repair. Jackson is a collision repair technician employed at CSN-Brimell Paint and Collision Center in Toronto, Ontario. He didn’t always know that he was going to be a collision repairer, but now that he is in the business, he’s happy he made the change. “I actually started out working truck and trailer,” said Jackson. “When I was outside in minus 40 weather, stuck underneath a transport, I decided it was time for something different.” Jackson noted that his decision to change careers was helped along by the Tropicana Autobody PreApprenticeship program. “I had gone into a shop to see what that side of things was like, and I’d seen an advertisement for the Tropicana Autobody Pre-Apprenticeship program,” says Jackson. “I applied through them, and got into their class, which lead to me working for Brimell where I am today.”

Starting Something Special Tropicana graduates a brand new class

T

ropicana graduated its 2017 class of pre-apprenticeship autobody repair students. The 16 students who graduated were celebrated for their hard work, dedication and passion, while all attending looked ahead to a promising future. As Imad Bajwa, one of the graduating students put it, “This graduation is just the start.” This ceremony marks the end of a five month autobody repair program that taught students not only how to weld, paint and repair, but also nurtured positive attitudes and teamwork. “Tropicana gave me a career, and an opportunity to grow,” said Michael Samuels, another of this year’s graduates. Marc Tremblay, the Pre-Apprenticeship Program Coordinator, told the audience, TRAINING “Tonight is going to be a celebration.” And D I R E C T O RY that it certainly was. The night kicked off with a beautiful dinner provided by Radisson Hotel, and students and family members alike enjoyed full plates of eggplant, potatoes, dragon fruit and chicken. The hall in which the ceremony took place was buzzing with conversation, laughter, proud students and parents. One mother was seeing two of her sons graduate—she was practically glowing. Speeches of congratulations soon followed. Mitzie Hunter, Minister of Education started it off. “Somehow,” she began, “You [Tremblay] worked it out that on the week of back to school, I’m right here where I’m

supposed to be.” She continued, “Knowledge is something you own, and no one can take that away from you. You are well on your way. You know that you can do it because you have come this far. Become a licensed technician, because it is in your grasp. So reach out and grasp it.” Addressing the Tropicana staff, she said, “The lives you have touched are helping to shape our communities.”

“ I have a challenge to this class: give back.” - Marc Tremblay Tremblay presented the gifts the graduating class were going to receive from various sponsors, whose kindness and generosity, Tremblay added, helped make Tropicana’s pre-apprenticeship autobody program what it is today. This year, Tropicana had more industry sponsors than it has ever had. “This is one of the most amazing industries I’ve ever worked with. I’ve never seen a group so unselfish,” said Tremblay. PPG, one of Tropicana’s most recent sponsors, is giving every graduating students a free paint certification class. Collision Industry Information Assistance will offer

each student a free estimating course and all of this was topped off with I-CAR Canada donating full Platinum I-CAR Scholarships to the entire graduating class. The reaction from the students in the audience was enough to know that these classes would not go unappreciated. Two awards were presented. The Director’s Choice Award, awarded to a student showing great leadership in the classroom and commitment to the program, and the CARSTAR Best-in-Class, presented to a student based on a scoring system. It was presented by Jean-Marc Julien, who, when addressing the audience said, “We here as a community have to embrace new people coming into the industry.” Both awards were presented to student David Wei. Tremblay had one last bit of homework for the graduating class. “I have a challenge to this class: give back.”The autobody repair community is strong because it’s filled with people who are willing to contribute to their community in a meaningful way, and Tremblay, as well as the rest of the team working behind the Tropicana Pre-Apprenticeship autobody repair program, are contributing to the industry’s strength through nurturing students who care about bettering their community. “I have one thing to say about Tropicana students,” he said. “They always succeed.” -Erin McLaughlin

After months of classes, projects and allnight study sessions, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house when Imad Bajwa addressed his classmates and their loved ones during the graduation ceremony at Tropicana’s highly regarded auto repair per-apprenticeship program last year. “Graduation is just the start,” said the 20-year-old. “But now we get to show the world what we are made of.”

Bajwa and his classmates have every reason for optimism. Now working on their apprenticeships with some of the top collision repair facilities in the country, they are at the beginning of what should be long and fruitful careers. Speaking directly after, the program’s co-ordinator, Marc Tremblay, wasn’t sure that Bajwa had left much unsaid. “I have only one thing more to say about Tropicana

students. They always succeed.” Showcase and share your school’s proud moment. Send us photos from your school’s 2018 graduation ceremony.

GRAINS OF SAND

The autobody industry is bigger than it appears ERIN MCLAUGHLIN

A

science fiction author once said, “There are universes in grains of sand.” In this story he was referring to the vast depth that a thing may hold, even if, in the eyes of an outsider, the thing is finite and small. This hidden, underappreciated depth the author suggests can be found in the autobody repair industry. To an outsider, the process is simple: A hammering out of dents, a coat of paint, and you’re good to go. But upon peering deeper into autobody repair, exploring the endless tunnels, caves and surprises within it, you realize autobody is so much more than you would have ever imagined. It holds a universe of potential. Dedicating an entire issue to the painters of collision repair speaks to the depth of the industry. A magazine could never encase in its pages every aspect of the industry—there is simply too much to discuss given that so many industry people, and the incredible work they do, deserve to be shown off to the world. Be proud of what you do. You are a life-protector, a magician, a scientist and an artist rolled up into one. Who else gets to say that? Yes, those who do not understand what goes on on the shop floor have their own perspective—one which is both strikingly inaccurate and widely accepted as the truth. It is so important to not let such perspectives lessen how much you value the work you do. It is your world, after all. What does it matter that others don’t understand it? Keep pushing forward, keep getting better, innovate, explore your capabilities and do things you never thought you would be able to. If someone out there can do it, so can you. This Training Directory illuminates the people in this industry who have helped make peoples’ personal and professional lives better, and people who built successful businesses out

of little. It tells stories of progress, resilience and fighting for what one wants. With that in mind, I would say that if there is any one thing you could take away from this magazine, it is this: that all the limitations you think you have do not really exist. Or, at the very least, they can’t stand in the way of you and the future you want if you don’t let them. I’m by no means saying that charging towards what you want is easy. Some people might have to work harder to get to where they want to be, navigate more complicated routes or sail through stormier seas. But you can do it, even if all you’re starting with is a shoestring and a pair of tweezers. Your mind, work ethic and a unbreakable willingness to learn are all you really need. They are powerful tools indeed, so yield them. Every person involved with a repair is necessary, as is the specific skills and areas of interest they employ in their involvement. From the estimator, to the detailer, to the painter, to the student who sweeps the floors—you cannot conduct a proper repair without dedication to quality and craftsmanship from every member of the team. So, we must champion every person that walks into work every day, who’s playing their role as best they can and who is striving to become better always. Every planet in this grain of a universe is needed. Even Pluto. And so, I encourage you to be proud of your contributions, big and small! And never forget that everything you do on the shop floor Erin McLaughlin is the edwill only serve to itor of Bodyworx Professional magazine.
