Service King announced that 25 technicians have graduated from its Apprentice Development Program.
The latest graduating class comes less than two months after Service King welcomed 42 technicians into the workforce in November, and just weeks after the career-training program became the first auto body repair apprenticeship to earn official registration from the U.S. Department of Labor.
“It is always a privilege to celebrate our apprentice graduates,” said Tyra Bremer, Service King vice president of talent development. “The entire Service King family is immensely proud of the hard work, dedication and commitment all 25 of our recent graduates have put towards developing their careers. We are proud to welcome them to the Service King team and look forward to growing our apprentice program for future auto repair technicians.”
Overall, Service King has recruited, trained and graduated 125 apprentice technicians into the workforce since the program launched in 2015, according to the company.
The Apprentice Development Program takes place at Service King Collision Repair Centers across the country. The most recent class completed programs in Texas, Illinois, Washington, California, Nevada and Arkansas. As part of the apprenticeship, technicians are immersed in a 52-week program developed exclusively by Service King and instructed by certified and experienced apprentice supervisors.
