Mr. Christian Lacourse, Director of the JH Leclerc School in Granby, welcomed the Aeronautical Training Program (ATP) to be offered to students in Secondary 3, 4 and 5, as of September 2018 and to the secondary 1 and 2 in September 2019
The ATP is promoting a region that is mobilized to ensure the availability of a qualified workforce to support economic growth: Mr. Patrick St-Laurent, General Manager of Granby Industrial, representing the City of Granby, recognizes the value of the ATP that promotes the integration of young people in the region’s leading manufacturing companies.
