Claude Meilleur Automotive Service Technician

At first, I had doubts about L’École de L’Automobile’s ability to provide me with the necessary knowledge for this career; mainly because of the length of the program they offer.

I had done three months in another school before, and it was boring so I quit. I really thought I wasted my time during these three months. At L’École de L’Automobile, I learned more in the first week then I did during the whole time I was at the other school.

At L’École de L’Automobile, the pace is fast and you need to be ready to work hard. I was studying a couple hours a night to make sure I succeeded. But my efforts really paid off. Shortly after I was done studying, I landed a job that was referred by the school.

I really enjoyed the smaller classes we had (fifteen students compared to thirty at my other school). L’École de L’Automobile offers a very efficient and professional learning experience. The teachers have great mechanical and educational skills.

Going to L’École de L’Automobile was definitely a positive experience for me and it gave me a new career.
