GM Canada and its dealers to train Oshawa workers to be service techs

If your experienced at putting vehicles together, might you have a leg up on the other guy when it comes to taking them apart?

Why do I want to say that workers on the assembly line would be worse at being techs? They're used to the product in its virgin state before all the crap is bolted on.

I guess that I'd say that the guys who work in end of line repair could already do a fair job of diagnosing and repairing. The people that worked in assembly are still very skilled and experienced about applying the correct torque to fasteners, about being detail-oriented, about avoiding collateral damage, etc. They might still not know how a vehicle works, but they have have an edge over the general public.

One set of skills they haven't learned is how to tackle corroded fasteners.
