MISSISSAUGA, ON, Sept. 27, 2013 /CNW/ - Subaru Canada, Inc. (SCI) continues to
bolster post-secondary automotive programs in Canada, today announcing its
support for SAIT Polytechnic's School of Transportation with the donation of a
drivetrain display. This new learning tool allows a view of the inside
workings of an automobile with the body removed.
The drivetrain will be on display at the main west entrance of the Clayton
Carroll Automotive Centre for current students to view. It will also be
incorporated into various events and tours when visitors pass through the
Automotive Centre. As a learning tool, it will be used in component
identification, aiding entry-level classes in the Automotive Service
Technology diploma program, the Automotive Service Technician apprenticeship
program as well as the Parts Technician apprenticeship program.
Before reaching SAIT Polytechnic, Subaru's drivetrain display travelled across
the country as part of the Canadian auto show circuit, illustrating the unique
layout of the SUBARU BOXER engine and the Subaru symmetrical full-time
All-Wheel Drive system.
"Subaru is pleased to lend support by providing this great visual aid," said
Shiro Ohta, president and CEO of Subaru Canada, Inc. "Earlier this summer,
Subaru donated a drivetrain to the Automotive Business School of Canada at
Georgian College. We're thrilled to support as many schools across the country
as we can. We're proud to be a part of the learning process, while introducing
a new generation to the benefits of Subaru symmetrical full-time All-Wheel
"Our current program delivers component and system training," said Matt
Carpenter, Academic Chair, Automotive Service Programs. "The Subaru display
allows the students to see all of the components working together."
