I no longer live in an apartment, and I just moved into my first house. That means, I no longer have to worry so much about having to keep the noise level down at my place. I am going to buy some new speakers, because I do not have speakers that are loud enough or have high enough sound quality for my liking. I am going to be playing a lot of music, and hosting some parties from time to time, now that I have my own house. Read the rest of this entry »
I want to get a better internet connection. I have had my current connection for a couple of years, and it was great at first. It was the fastest connection available. But since then, I have realized that there are faster internet connections available in my area, and I want to find the fastest internet that I can get today. I am looking at high speed internet providers in my local area, and trying to judge which one will be best to go through.
One of the main reasons that I am so insistent upon having the best internet connection available, is that I play a lot of games on the Internet. When you are able to play without lag, then it makes the gaming experience a lot better than it would be otherwise. I have not been able to play without lag in some newer games, that take more resources than games released further back in time. I think that the network capabilities of Internet users will continue to be tested by newer games that come out. Read the rest of this entry »
Right now, I am thinking about whether I should switch to Direct TV. But before I make up my mind, I want to learn more about the type of DVR services that they offer, when you sign up for their service. I want to get a good DVR service, because I tend to record a lot of shows and movies. I am not home when things tend to come on, so it is important that I am able to record things. I am looking at deals for Direct TV in Hazelwood and for more information about what comes with the service.
I wish I could get a listing of all of the channels that I will have, once I sign up for the service. The advertisements that I have seen, just tell me that I will get over a certain amount of channels if I make the switch. Read the rest of this entry »
Did you know that both employers and students benefit from the Canadian Tire-sponsored Automotive Service Technician training at Centennial College? For students, it is an opportunity to learn new skills and move up on the automotive industry. Meanwhile, John Morin, Service Manager from a Canadian Tire store explains how this undertaking benefits employers. “The benefits from an employer’s standpoint are that all the classroom training is complete,” he says. “We have a technician who is far more advanced in theory, more confident in his or her abilities and now just requires practical experience. We are able to adapt our manpower situation where we do not have a need to hire additional staff for an eight-week period (and possibly have to lay them off when the student returns to work). We have the benefit of having additional staff for the busy summer months and the new hire can attend school in the fall. This gives us a crop of well-prepared people who can advance quickly to a licensed technician.”
But how are all of the benefits actually applied with the Automotive Service Technician apprenticeship? First and foremost, the training provided is more in-depth and in-school sessions are longer than that of traditional apprenticeships. As such, students are taught by spending 32 weeks partaking in in-school training and then heading to on-the-job experience at one of Ontario’s over 190 Canadian Tire stores, for four weeks. That means that by the time students reach their employer sessions, they will already have knowledge of the field thanks to the combination of theory and practical skills they are taught at Centennial College’s Ashtonbee Campus. This location is the largest transportation training centre in the province and includes tools, real cars and a lab environment. The generic tools on which, students practice are supplied by Canadian Tire to ensure confidence and comfort once they graduate and become employed.
In addition, while in school, Automotive Service Technician Training students attend courses that are part of a provincial automotive curriculum and satisfy the knowledge necessary to become a licensed technician. These courses are: Drivetrian Sytems, Electrical/Electronic & Emmission Systems, Engine Systems, Work Practices and Procedures, Suspension/Steering and Brake Systems

Becoming a mechanic, or as the profession is also called, an automotive technician gives you a skilled trade, which not only means you may have access to a subsidized education through apprenticeship grants, but with about twenty-two million licensed drivers in Canada, an automotive career gives you a reliable source of employment regardless of the state of the economy. However, people looking into how to become a mechanic have a several step process ahead of them, starting with finding a mechanic school and funding, but including four years of practical, hands on work experience for full trade certification.
Choosing the right Mechanic Program:
Mechanic programs are provided through community colleges or vocational schools. Prospective students must consider the location, cost and facilities. It is a good idea to tour the campus to see what sort of hands on experience you will get, and speak with instructors, and if possible, past students. While options vary, you will find there is a mechanic school in most parts of Canada. Once youve found a school and applied, your time will be spent learning all about cars, their working and how to keep them running and in good repair. Your training might be as an automotive service technician, which is more focused on the inner workings of the car, or on the equally essential alignment and breaks or the auto body and post-collision repair.
Are you interested in auto technician training or auto sales college? Before you settle on a course of study, take the time to familiarize yourself with some emerging industry trends.
Compact used cars are appreciating
As most graduates of auto sales college will have learned, tradition has it that a used car should decrease in value by an average of 15% per year. But according to some figures from 2011, five-year old small cars like the Honda Civic and Ford Focus actually increased in value between 2010 and 2011.
There are several reasons for this change, which may be of interest to those considering automotive careers. The decline of the North American car industry has affected the used car market, which in the past was partly fed by the surplus of North American-made stock. Also, the Japanese tsunami has led to an increase in prices of Japanese cars, leading some consumers who would have otherwise opted for a new car to seek a used alternative.
Takeaway: You may have gone to auto sales college to learn how to sell SUVs. But more and more of todays car buyers are looking for fuel efficiency. Many consumers are trying to trade in their larger vehicles for more efficient models, and finding that they have to sell at a loss.
