Technician.Academy recently had the opportunity to present fuel systems training to the automotive students of West Kentucky Community and Technical College (WKCTC) in Paducah, Kentucky.
I was reminded of the following article that a friend of mine, Rick Escalambre, wrote several years ago. I think it still holds true today. As you read this, remember some of the numbers have changed, but I believe the overall context is still prevalent today.
Ivy Tech Community College Evansville Campus is preparing students for careers in automotive repair.
The technician shortage cliff that we are quickly approaching has been the main highlight of 2017 and has been the topic of discussion for several years now.
We are familiar with the right to repair and its value to our independent shops, but have we considered simple pieces of data? Yes, some of these may seem small and insignificant, like the time between service intervals, but the value it can be to other industries is enormous.
