Intense hands-on training so you can master your skill set

Amber Chursinoff-Myers Automotive Service Technician

My name is Amber Chursinoff-Myers and I am a recent graduate of the Automotive Service Technician Foundation program at the Automotive Training Centre.

I started the course with a bit of mechanical knowledge and was expecting the other students to treat me differently because I am female.  Even though I was the only female in my class at the time, all the students treated me with respect and helped me when I needed it.

Attending ATC has helped me gain the knowledge to feel confident going on to my first year apprenticeship.  As my program was nearing its end and I was doing my practicum, I realized that I love what I’m doing and I can’t wait to get started.  Now that I am done with my program I can take my skills and knowledge to new heights as I proceed with my new job at Hallmark Ford.

Here is something I want to leave with you:  Follow your dreams and you will succeed at anything.  Don’t let life get you down.  Life isn’t about finding yourself, it is about creating yourself.  And for women, don’t be afraid to go into this trade, or let anyone tell you that you can’t do it because you are female.  Women make great mechanics, and sometimes we do it even better!
