Service King Collision Repair Centers® this week welcomed its latest class of technicians to the quickly growing Apprentice Development Program. In total, 37 aspiring technicians took part in celebratory Signing Day events at 10 different Service King locations across the U.S.
With the influx of young talent, Service King’s innovative program now grows to more than 160 technicians in active apprenticeships across the U.S. The Apprentice Development Program officially launched in 2015 and has already graduated more than 60 technicians into the Service King workforce while more than doubling in overall size during that time.
“The Apprentice Development Program continues to be an inspiration for our entire organization as we welcome another eager class of aspiring technicians to our locations across the country,” said Tyra Bremer, Service King Vice President of Talent Development. “The program is built to equip each apprentice for a rewarding and successful career at Service King, and we look forward to providing an engaging, hands-on path to achieve just that.”
Service King’s Signing Day events signaled the official start of a hands-on 52-week paid training program engineered to prepare aspiring technicians for a successful career at Service King. During the program, apprentice technicians receive personal instruction and training inside Service King repair centers across the U.S. Meanwhile, the Apprentice Development Program is backed by a proprietary I-CAR certified curriculum developed by Service King officials.
The Apprentice Development Program has been widely heralded across the collision repair industry and featured in the media, including recent stories by Dallas CBS affiliate KTVT. This summer, Service King President Jeff McFadden was invited to speak about the program in front of an international audience of industry leaders at the annual IBIS Global Summit in Madrid, Spain.
