March 7, 2019   ·   0 Comments

Student: Ethan Miceli & Dusty Purdy

Placement: Roy’s Service Centre

This week Ethan Miceli and Dusty Purdy from Centre Dufferin District High School share a little bit about their experience and how Roy’s Service Center is contributing to the community.

Roy’s Service Centre is a local family run mechanic shop owned and operated by Roy Hinbest and his son Mike. They specialize in maintaining your daily driven vehicle and diagnosing any problems or repairs needed.  

Ethan and Dusty’s co-op experience working as Automotive Service Technician’s Assistants with this company helped them gain meaningful work experience before deciding which career path to take. As part of their placement, they had the opportunity to complete oil changes, change and balance tires, and assist with more complex jobs such as working on brake lines and changing gas lines. Some of the special equipment they got to experience using were the alignment rack, the code reader, as well as the hoists. Each day Dusty and Ethan could expect to complete a variety of responsibilities such as taking out the garbage, sweeping the floors, filling up brake clean/washer fluid, and emptying oil buckets. Through their Co-op course, some of the programs and training they have token include First Aid and CPR, Confined Space, Fire Extinguishers and Handling of Flammable/Combustible Liquids.        

Some other jobs that are associated with Roy’s Service Centre are Erskine’s Automotive, NAPA Auto Parts, Mack and Snap on Tools. 

Roy’s is an active contributor to the community by sponsoring local sports teams and fixing peoples vehicles.  They also fix all the OPP cars at the Dufferin OPP yard.
