There is no greater peace of mind when your car or truck needs service – whether routine maintenance or a repair – than turning it over to a well-trained technician you trust.
The technical sophistication of today’s vehicles requires technicians who can inspect, diagnose and repair the interconnected electronic and mechanical systems. The need is acute: Mopar estimates it needs to fill 5,000 technical jobs between 2015 and 2018 as older technicians retire.
Mopar’s CAP (Career Automotive Program) and CAP LOCAL programs, which train high school and college students to work in FCA US LLC dealerships, help feed the need for technicians.
The Mopar CAP LOCAL program is growing, adding Mopar-specific courses at 58 community college and technical training schools across the country, joining the 31 CAP programs.
The Mopar CAP LOCAL program at Gateway Technical College in Kenosha, Wisconsin, stars in a new video in WorkingNation’s “Do Something Awesome” series. WorkingNation is a nonprofit group advocating increased technical training for Americans.
“If you wanted your son or daughter to work in a career where they’re on the front edge of technology, I could make the case that your son or daughter should be an automotive technician,” says John Fox, Director of the FCA Performance Institute, in the video.
With the Mopar CAP LOCAL program, a student can earn a degree in as little as 24 months while working as an apprentice in an FCA US dealership, leading to a full-time job and a quick start on a vital and challenging career.
