The training will continue for 2 days and focuses on fundamentals of estimating, awareness on vehicle construction, basics of estimate writing, gathering knowledge on collision manuals, supplementary charges and collision damage analysis.
Classes will commence from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The London course will be held at Fanshawe College on May 6 and 7 whereas the Cambridge course will start on May 20 and 21. The entrance fee is $550, plus HST, each person for CIIA members and $750, plus HST, each person, for non-members. To participate in the classes, everybody has to make advance payment.
CIIA has also arranged a new class for the sake of unlicensed techs so that they can perform well in Ontario's provincial trades license exam. The prep courses will be organized in both London and Cambridge and last nine nights, with classes held Monday and Wednesday night. The London class starts on May 9. Classes in Cambridge will start from May 24. No classes will be arranged on Victoria Day, on May 23.
