Auto Tech Training Still Needed

In the Dec. 15 letter (“Building Committee Must Be Replaced”), written by Jack Milburn, he stated that the auto shop program at Rogers was slated to be cancelled. The reason stated was that the auto companies “prefer to train their own people in house.”

Training for franchised dealers is specialized, and happens after a tech is hired by the dealership. Remember, however, a tech needs to be trained in the basics before any of this happens. This is why vocational schools are so important to the process.
