AIA Canada, I-CAR, and Canadian Welding Bureau Partner to Enhance Welding Knowledge in Auto Shops

I-CAR Canada has partnered with the Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB Group) to increase welding training opportunities across Canada. Through this partnership, CWB Group lends the use of its training facilities in Milton, Ontario, and Nisku, Alberta, along with its stable of nationwide instructors to I-CAR Canada for industry-leading.

This partnership will also allow the CWB Group to continue to grow in the collision industry and expand their network while sharing their expertise.  

The initiative will ensure that welding training from I-CAR Canada is accessible to all Canadians in a timely fashion. CWB Instructors will be travelling across the country training technicians in-shop, which will ensure more collision shops in rural and urban areas of the country will be able to offer safe, quality and timely vehicle repairs. 

“This is an incredible opportunity to provide I-CAR welding training to rural, sometimes inaccessible, areas of Canada.” Stuart Klein, Vice President of Collision Programs at AIA Canada. “Working with the CWB Group at these facilities and through their travelling instructors will ensure that all Canadian collision sector businesses, regardless of their location, will have access to the training they need to safely repair vehicles.” 

“At CWB Group, we’re committed to enhancing the skills of Canada’s welding community. Partnering with I-CAR Canada allows us to combine our robust training infrastructure with their specialized curriculum, ensuring a brighter, safer future for the collision industry. Together, we’re reaching every corner of Canada,” shared Bill Gwynne, vice president, Industry Solutions at the CWB Group.
