Motive Action Success Story: Charles

Motive Action Charles success story

Charles, with instructor Jennifer Farrand, is pleased to be awarded his scholarship.

Before Charles attended Motive Action to study Auto Body, he worked as a Warehouse Associate with no room to grow his skills. He viewed it as a dead-end job.

Charles was happy to have an opportunity at Motive Action to learn a trade where he works with his hands and can make a career out of it. He said since studying here, he has “seen a lot of progress and more skills in my life than before I joined the trade.  For example, I never knew how to prep a door, bumper or a whole car before, but now I can say I know how to prep.”

Now, Charles is employed in an Auto Body shop in Calgary.  He plans to use his scholarship to buy books while he attends SAIT as a first year Auto Body Technician Apprentice. 

We wish you continued success in your studies, Charles!
