Why Choose ATC?

Here are 3 reasons to choose Automotive Training Centre:

Rapid access to the job market

While an EPD lasts more than a year, our intensive program lasts less than 7 months. These 7 months include 5 weeks of paid internship, which allows you to get your foot in door with the automotive world in Montreal. You thus earn 1 year on a traditional training: while DVS students receive their diploma, you will already have one year of experience and will have started to earn your living.

At least 50% of the time spent in the workshop

Our trainings are above all practical. Our goal is to enable you to perform your duties as quickly as possible. Our instructors are certified and experienced mechanics still working in the industry. Our auto mechanics program is therefore always revised to stay on top of the latest developments and make you a sought-after profile.

A workshop at the forefront of the mechanical industry

Our workshop reflects the reality of today’s garages. It includes state-of-the-art equipment that allows our students to work in an environment similar to the one they will find at the end of their training. In addition, we allow our students to bring their cars in for repairs. Our goal is really to work with them on cases that are as real as possible.

Dianna Lifford

He had heard great reviews and knew of many successful Business Managers that had started with this course. Needless to say I took the course. Almost a year ago, I started an exhilarating new career path as a Business Manager thanks to Arlie and the Automotive Training Centre.

The interactive course provided me with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to begin this new career and to be productive within weeks of starting. Our class instructor was able to provide us with hands on knowledge from years of experience in the industry, as well as from different dealership roles, which was extremely helpful. Not only that, but the industry representatives, who attended the course, allowed me to begin a network for job searching. Within one week of completing the course I began my first day at Dennison Chevrolet.

Both my Business Manager partner and I are graduates of the Automotive Training Centre. We are both thrilled with the opportunities this career has provided so far and we look forward to a rewarding future.
Thanks ATC!!!

Sincerely,

Dianna Lifford
Business/ Finance Manager
