LTC designated national automotive training site

Lakeshore Technical College has been named a Mopar CAP (Career Automotive Program) Local training site.

The program, designed to develop a critical stream of highly-trained technicians to work in U.S. dealerships, recently added 34 colleges in addition to LTC to its network of certified technical training sites.

Mopar CAP LOCAL prepares technicians to work as Level 1 Technicians upon graduation from a certified, two-year training institution. The National Coalition of Certifi- cation Centers (NC3) certifies each Mopar CAP LOCAL school to ensure they meet the stringent requirements necessary for success.

“LTC’s Automotive Maintenance Technician program trains students to meet the highest market standards, and gives them the most modern, effective instruction and tools in the industry,” said Patrick Staszak, LTC’s dean of agriculture, energy and transportation

Beginning in November, LTC students will train in the college’s new Advanced Automotive Technology Center. The high-tech facility will be one of the most technically advanced auto training centers in the country.

“This partnership with Mopar CAP Local is a great complement to our program and the opening of our new, state-of-the-art Advanced Automotive Technology Center,” Staszak said. “Our students are trained to meet industry demand and graduate from our program ready to work in the area’s top auto service centers. Now with Mopar CAP Local they will be able to add a new skill designation to their qualifications.”

Automaker Fiat Chrysler Automobile US established Mopar CAP Local in partnership with NC3 to train approximately 1,000 students annually. “Together with our partner, NC3, we are making great progress in expanding our training sites by identifying and certifying colleges nationwide that have highly-qualified automotive programs,” said John Fox, director of dealer training at FCA US LLC.
