A video featuring the newly launched Level 1 Commercial Vehicle Apprenticeship Training Program has been released recently. Filmed on location in the Power & Equipment Building at Kemptville Campus, the 8-minute video features instructor Anthony MacKay explaining the different modules of the course.
The program, delivered by the Upper Canada District School Board, in partnership with Kemptville Campus, the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario, le Conseil des écoles publiques de l'Est de l'Ontario, and le Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est, was launched in October at UCDSB’s TR Leger site on Kemptville Campus.
The video explains how the program offers in-class and practical learning for three motive power trades: Agricultural Equipment Technician, Heavy Duty Equipment Technician, and Truck and Coach Technician. The course provides students the opportunity to gain the skills and knowledge through in-class learning and with practical experiences that are specific to these related careers.
This program has been made available to qualified students enrolled in the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP) or students who are working toward completing their Ontario Secondary School Diploma and interested in completing a co-op or enrolling in OYAP. The program currently has full registration with 20 students enrolled from the four participating school boards.
“It’s an amazing collaboration between the four school boards and Kemptville Campus,” said teacher Anthony MacKay. “One thing I'd like to add is that this program couldn't be what it is without the generous support of our industry partners. They have come out in a very large way to support this program and get it off the ground.”
