Toyota donation introduces Niagara College students to new technology

Sep 23, 2010

Students in Niagara College’s Motive Power Automotive programs will have the opportunity to learn about new automotive technologies thanks to Toyota Canada’s generous donation of a 2006 Toyota Avalon.

The donation will allow students to become familiar with Toyota’s manufacturing process and give a direct connection to Toyota’s training in Canada – opening more options for students post-graduation.

A ceremony will be held on September 27 to mark the donation, with representatives of Niagara Toyota dealers in attendance. The event takes place at 10 a.m., in the automotive lab, at the Niagara College Technology Centre, at the Welland Campus.

Niagara College offers full- and part-time programs, as well as pre-apprenticeship and apprenticeship training in motive power trades, including Small Engine Repair, Motive Power Technician-Automotive (Co-op), Motive Power Techniques-Automotive, Motive Power Technician-Automotive Apprenticeship (Co-op), Automotive Service Technician-Apprenticeship and Automotive Service Technician-Pre-Apprenticeship.
