An employer comments on their experience with OYAP.

One company described their connections to OYAP. “In April, a clean-up kid started at our service facility in Ajax at the age of 16. The next year in high school we had him as a co-op student. After one more year we signed him up on the OYAP program. We then had him do the rest of his apprenticeship including some of the Carquest C.T.I. programs as well as some offered by NAPA and Head office. Today, the "Lube kid" was informed that he had passed the Auto Technician Challenge Exam and has become one of Ontario's newest Automotive Technicians with Inter-Provincial standing."
