The Auctioneers Training Centre is held in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan at the Saskatoon Livestock Sales pavilion located on hwy #14 approx 5 Kms west of the city of Saskatoon. The Auctioneers Training Centre was formerly held in Regina, Saskatchewan in the Heartland Livestock arena, but was relocated to Saskatoon when the Regina location was sold. This facility is a world class sales arena, and as our student you will have the opportunity to auction cattle during regular weekly auction to a group of professional cattle buyers. You will also have the opportunity to be the auctioneer and ring person for a weekly household and antique auction at the auction house of Klass A Auctions in Saskatoon. Another opportunity will be provided for you as our student to be an auctioneer/ring person for a dealer only auto auction, Adesa, Saskatoon location.
These are superior facilities for teaching as these are not simulated environments, they are the real thing. The majority of your training will be taking place in the Saskatoon Livestock Sales premises. Each student will be provided and use a PA system everyday. Students are taught in an active and semi formal atmosphere with the fundamentals and basics of auctioneering being thoroughly and firmly imbedded in the minds of the students.
Students from the Auctioneers Training Centre will have an awareness of the avenues that are available in the Auction profession. With the superb training this school offers its graduates, there has never been a greater opportunity, than now, to become a successful Auctioneer. Everyone enjoys a clear, smooth, rhythmic and often melodic chant of the professional auctioneer.
I just wanted to send you a line and thank you for the training I received this past two weeks. As you know, I had gone to Auctioneer School in the USA 15 years ago, and never really done anything with it. I understand now why I did not. I never received the proper training, that would give me the confidence to go into business as soon as I got home. But the opposite holds true today, because your teaching definitely give the students confidence.
Well, as you know I was the oldest person in your class. As a very successful business person most of my life, I have always tried to educate myself in a number of different fields. Your school of auctioneering and the way you run it, has been the best educational experience I have ever had the privilege of attending.
After graduating from this course, I have an even greater desire to continue auctioneering and thanks to Ken Jordan, I now have the knowledge, skills and overpowering determination to succed for Ken, the institute and myself.
