Kevin Gore-Barrow Automotive Service Technician

My name is Kevin Gore-Barrow,

My interest in cars began at a young age, and that interest was mainly influenced by a close friend. Growing up on the Caribbean Island of Antigua, drag racing is what led me to my obsession with cars. How an engine works and all that is involved in that sparked my interest. I gained some experience working in a few shops, but I still wanted to learn more and hoped to one day become a professional Automotive Service Technician. I did some research online which led me to The Automotive Training Centres. I moved to Vancouver to attend this institution, and I am happy I did.
My instructor was very helpful, teaching me the different systems and parts of an automobile , how they work and also the correct procedures in which to test and diagnose different problems. The staff at ATC made my time here very pleasant, I could not have asked for anything better. The experience and knowledge I have gained from my school has made me fully confident to make my way in the Automotive Industry. I am now a proud graduate of The Automotive Training Centre, and on my way to fulfilling my dream. Thank you ATC for all the knowledge I have gained, and the encouragement and the great learning environment which helped me to become successful in this program. I am now on my way to a successful career thanks to ATC.

Proud Graduate
