Our graduates are always quick to note how they couldn’t have done it without our dedicated instructors and focused curriculum. After alumnus Shaun Way graduated from the Parts and Warehousing program and went on to find a rewarding career in his field, here’s what he had to say about ATC:

“I felt lost when I first came to ATC to begin my program, and I didn’t know what to expect, but as I got further into the program, I really learned a lot of new skills and that helped me build my self-confidence. I feel that I gained useful knowledge from this course, and I think that this training is an important step to beginning a new career. I felt that the practicum (or work experience) was the best part of the course, because it prepares you for the workforce, and gives you an idea of what to expect and what your employer is going to expect of you. I completed my practicum at Barnes Wheaton Harley Davidson in Langley. It was an experience in which I learned many things, such as parts sales and how to look up the parts I needed.”
