CATA to host training program, job fair for veterans May 13-14

March 15, 2013
A new CATA initiative, “Operation Troop Train,” launches this spring to help military veterans return to the workplace and to connect qualified candidates with local dealers.
The dealer association partnered with the Illinois Department of Employment Security to select interested candidates who will undergo a CATA-provided automotive training curriculum. Immediately after the training, candidates will be able to participate in a job fair at the CATA office in Oakbrook Terrace.
The training portion for the returning servicemen and women will be all day May 13 and in the morning on May 14; the job fair follows in the afternoon on May 14.
The IDES will select 40 candidates for the automotive training program, and the CATA will open the job fair to new-car dealers.
Interested CATA dealers should contact Jennifer Morand, the CATA’s senior public relations and social media manager, to secure a spot or obtain additional details. She is at (630) 424-6084 and
