Chad Williams Transportation Operations and Dispatching

My name is Chad Williams.  I was an injured worker when Worksafe and I decided that the Dispatching and Transportation Operations program at the Automotive Training Centre would be a good fit for my situation.

At first I was hesitant, as I had no experience in this industry. Being out of school for 20 years, I wasn’t sure of what to expect from adult learning.  The professional staff at ATC was very helpful to me, and understood where I was coming from and what my goals were, and helped me to achieve them.

Both of the instructors, Jerry Virtanen and Lawrence Candiago have a wealth of knowledge and understanding of the transportation and trucking industries, and are able to pass that along to their students.  With the education that I now possess, I am now working full time as Head Dispatcher for a major trucking company in the lower mainland.  This would not have been possible for me without my training here at ATC, and without the level of teaching and value of the materials taught here.
I would like to thank the staff at the Automotive Training Centre for helping me rejoin the workforce, and to succeed in the Dispatching field.
