The initiative is part of Ford's Automotive Career Exploration (ACE) program. The École des Métiers de l’Équipement Motorisé will benefit from the two vehicles, specifically for the following programs:
- Automotive mechanics
- Advising on vehicle maintenance and repair
- Automotive parts sale and advice
These vehicles could not be sold to a customer because they were damaged during a flood. Minor repairs and a full cleaning were done by the dealership prior to donating. These are newer vehicles equipped with some of the latest technology available.
This will help provide students with hands-on training. The ACE program aims to raise awareness of career possibilities as an automotive technician and to allow students to acquire valuable knowledge about automotive systems.
