    • This year we are partnering with Saskpolytechnic to offer an Autobody Skills Boot Camp!  Like the rest, this boot camp will be 100% hands-on with students learning different aspects of autobody repair.  At the first session they will be given a car to work on and will have to progress through the 5 week program!  They will be welding, sanding, grinding and painting!  They will be using industrial machinery and tools and let me tell you, the painting booth is a bit intimidating(probably just me though)!

    If you have students who are interested in working on cars and restoring old cars, this is a great opportunity for them.  The camp is taught by the Autobody program head at Saskpolytech and he is very excited to throw these kids right into the work and see what we can do with them!

    The program will run on Wednesdays at Saskpolytech from 4:30pm-7:30pm beginning on Wednesday, October 23, 2019.

    Application deadline is Thursday, October 17, 2019.
