Rockland Community College announces Subaru Distributors Corp. as the first car manufacturer to forge an educational agreement with RCC’s new Herbert Kurz Automotive Technology Center in Orangeburg, New York.

Barry Wells, executive vice president of parts, service and logistics for Subaru Distributors Corp., states that, “Subaru is excited to be the first manufacturer partnering with Rockland Community College’s Automotive Technology Program at this new state-of-the art facility. Rockland is one of the first schools partnering with Subaru Distributors Corp.’s launch of Subaru University and we feel that it is a solid investment in the education of our future Technicians. This partnership will certainly go a long way in fulfilling the need for highly trained automotive Technicians at our retailers, while keeping pace with the explosive growth of the Subaru brand.”

Subaru Distributors Corp., incorporated in 1975, serves as an independent distributor for Subaru operating in New York State and Northern New Jersey, representing Subaru of America. The 65 franchised dealers within this territory employ approximately 500 Subaru Technicians.

The sparkling new hi-tech facility (27,304 square-feet) includes five classrooms, a certification room, and a Snap-On Certified Lab with 10 lifts. Dr. Cliff L. Wood, president of RCC, states that, “RCC’s automotive program offers accessible professional technical education to ensure our graduates can successfully fulfill their career goals as well as the needs for trained professional technicians in the industry. Students are prepared to work immediately after attaining this degree or can continue their education for a bachelor’s degree.”
