Universal Technical Institute (NYSE: UTI), the leading provider of post-secondary education for students seeking careers as professional automotive, diesel, collision repair, motorcycle and marine technicians, has partnered with FCA US LLC to launch the new Mopar Technical Education Curriculum (Mopar TEC) training program at its NASCAR Technical Institute campus in Mooresville, N.C.
The curriculum, which was developed in partnership with the FCA Performance Institute, is a part of the Mopar Career Automotive Program (MoparCAP) and offers high-tech, hands-on instruction in vehicle diagnostics, maintenance and repairs, customer service and dealership operations. Mopar TEC graduates will have Level 2 certification in a number of key skill areas.
“This new partnership lets our students get their hands on the same platforms, tools and technology they’ll find in the real world, and prepares them to succeed in FCA’s expansive dealership network,” said Kim McWaters, chairman and chief executive officer at UTI. “As the demand for trained transportation service technicians continues to grow, more and more industry partners are stepping up to help us create training programs that are specific to their needs. Training students for success in the workforce is our top priority and the Mopar TEC program will provide even more graduates with the credentials they need to hit the ground running at one of the world’s top automakers.”
