Motorcycle Program at Olds College Unique to Central AB

OC will be offering a new pre-employment Motorcycle Mechanic program to students starting in February 2012. The 12 week program will give students the opportunity to find out if the \'in-demand\' industry is right for them.

A new 12 week program at Olds College will train students to work as motorcycle mechanics starting in February 2012.

Apprenticeship Coordinator Tony Jordan says the new pre-employment program will give students a great head start in the industry.


The program will be unique to Central Alberta, and only one of 2 in the province.

Jordan says there has also been interest in providing it as a dual credit program for high school students in the near future.

The college is also looking for support from the industry for training aids.

For more information on how to get involved, or if you'd like to apply for the program, call Laurie at 403-556-8235.
