Peterborough, Ontario — December 6, 2017 –– The latest issue of Bodyworx Professional is now available in digital format. The newest edition looks at education, with a particular focus on some of the greatest opportunities available for students today.
This issue’s cover story looks at Cecile Bukmeier, the accomplished National Skills Champion and Teacher at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT). Her inspiring story is one of teaching young students that they can achieve anything they want in the auto repair industry. “Nothing is impossible,” is the message Bukmeier is trying to teach her students. Encouraging young people into trades is a nation-wide problem, but Bukmeier is helping to make students feel more confident.
The focus on education continues with our very first school spotlight supplement. The handy feature looks at the information you need on all of the autobody repair programs across Canada. With this information, we hope we can set you off with a great start in the industry.
