Our 3 Training Platforms include:


APPRENTICE PROGRAM prepares people for a new career path in the Auto Body Industry. The FasTrack approach is to train the apprentice and equip them with the skills needed for an entry-level position in a body shop. Upon completion of the 60-hour program,  the apprentice will be employed in an approved 'mentor' shop.
 Alongside the apprentice program is an equally vital mentor-training program for the participating shops. 

Bridging the two together will help to ensure the future success of the overall program. Our goal through this training process is achieved by:

  1. Enabling people to find quality shops in which to work.
  2. Connecting body shops with new and motivated employees.
  3. Ensuring the future of the Auto Body Industry by adding much needed and qualified technicians to the work force.
