Supporting Trades Development: The Simplicity Air - Futures Program was launched with a simple purpose: to provide high school graduates considering trades school or apprenticeships a unique platform to acquire hands-on expertise in Mobile Heating, Ventilation, Air-Conditioning Service, and Idle Management systems maintenance and service. As a Futures Program candidate, Sam’s skills development was contributed by his work alongside the highly skilled team of Service Technicians at Simplicity Air. This collaborative approach enabled him to draw from their decades of experience while receiving practical exposure to a variety of unique service-related responsibilities. Central to the program's design is a focus on skills development, ensuring candidate growth is tracked and showcased within the program.
Sam's involvement in the Simplicity Air - Futures Program will create a basis for his enrollment in the Mechanical Techniques - Industrial Millwright Program at Conestoga College this fall. This fusion of skills development and practical exposure aims to give Sam a solid foundation for a successful trades career.
Beyond Experience: The Simplicity Air - Futures Program's impact transcends experiential learning, extending tangible benefits to its participants. Candidates receive competitive wages for their program hours, a testament to their dedication and diligence. These hours can also may count toward apprenticeship hours across various trades disciplines, from Agricultural Equipment Technician to Heavy-Duty Equipment Technician. Notably, candidates who excel within the program are eligible for a tool bursary of up to $1500.00, providing vital support as they venture into future skilled trades apprenticeships or education.
Shaping Skills Development and Trades Employment: Founder and President of Simplicity Air Ltd., Brian Bassindale, emphasizes the Futures Program's pivotal role in shaping trades education and employment.
