Posted April 30, 2015
In partnership with the Canadian Tooling and Manufacturing Association, CenterLine has officially hired 3 new employees who recently completed the Introductory Trades Training program. The program includes education in tool, die, mould, and machining skills. Starting with 6 weeks of training at the Valiant Training & Development Centre, participants are then placed at local businesses where a 32 week training program commences. During the in-depth shop-floor training, candidates will learn and develop a variety of machining skills while earning valuable team building & workplace experience.

CenterLine's Employee Development & Training Coordinator Karl Mroczkowski attended a dinner and awards ceremony Tuesday, April 28th, 2015 to celebrate the accomplishment of our participants. The CTMA program was launched in response to employers who felt the current system of producing skilled trades wasn’t working. The program provides participants with an opportunity to gain hands-on  experience and receive an hourly wage while they are training.

CenterLine (Windsor) Limited congratulates our new employees, and looks forward to hiring more participants from this program in the upcoming months.

CenterLine partners with the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program
Posted April 20, 2015
CenterLine's Employee Development & Training Coordinator Karl Mroczkowski, attended St. Clair College on Thursday, April 16th for the Greater Essex County District School Board and St. Clair College joint announcement confirming the granting of Level One/Dual Credit Attestation for co-op students in the OYAP Precision Metal Cutting Program at 4 GECDSB high schools: General Amherst, Belle River, Sandwich and Herman.
 
CenterLine has partnered with the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program, with 7 students taking part in the placement at our facilities. Students in the program receive credit for the first year of their college training by completing the program.
 
The apprenticeship agreement is the only one of its kind in Ontario. Rob Chittim, Chair of St. Clair College's School of Skilled Trades, felt comfortable recommending to the Ministry of Trades, Colleges and Universities that the two-year high school program was the equivalent of having completed Level 1 of their apprenticeship at St. Clair.

To be eligible, an apprentice must have completed the two-year OYAP high-school program at one of the board's four sites, be a registered apprentice and member of the Ontario College of Trades. Students must also have maintained at least a 60 percent average in their math, manufacturing technology and co-op education courses (six credits).

CenterLine congratulates these students on taking the first steps to a rewarding career.
