From the KSWO.com website:
Tyler Junior College announced Friday that a new program will benefit its automotive technology students, as will area dealerships. The school has partnered with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) and the National Coalition of Certification Centers (NC3).
From Tyler Junior College:
TJC officials signed an agreement today with FCA and NC3, to immediately incorporate Fiat Chrysler’s Mopar CAP (Career Automotive Program) Local training program into TJC’s current auto tech curriculum.
Along with their regular auto tech curriculum, TJC students can simultaneously train for and receive certification as Mopar Level 1 technicians for any Fiat Chrysler dealership.
TJC is one of the first 20 colleges nationwide – and one of only two institutions in Texas – to be recruited for the program, which was created by FCA in July 2015 to fill a critical need for more than 5,000 service technicians by the year 2018.
“We are thrilled to be one of the first colleges to offer this program,” TJC President Mike Metke said, “and we’re excited to see how these added skills will give TJC students an edge in finding great jobs right here at home.”
