Driving Industry Excellence

Did you know that in British Columbia there is no legal requirement that people working in auto repair shops are qualified? Beyond certifications for businesses, the ARA believes that all technicians performing repairs on vehicles should be certified as well. That’s why the ARA is working with the provincial government and the Industry Training Authority (ITA) on bringing compulsory trades designations back to B.C.
