Forty Future Collision Repair Technicians Set to Join Service King’s Apprentice Program at Signing Events

Highlighting the event on Nov. 15th was a group of 11 apprentices who took part in a "Signing Day" celebration in Houston at UTI's campus.


Service King Collision Repair Centers announced it welcomed the next wave of apprentice technicians to its Apprentice Development Program on Tuesday, Nov. 15th. Forty aspiring technicians joined the program at ceremonies across the country. The day was highlighted by a group of 11 apprentices who took part in a “Signing Day” celebration in Houston at UTI’s campus.

“The entire Service King Family was thrilled to welcome the next class of talented technicians to the Apprentice Development Program,” said Jeff McFadden, Service King president. “We are driven and passionate about investing in the next generation of repair technicians. That week was another exciting step forward in the ongoing positive impact this program brings to both our technicians and the industry as a whole.”

Service King’s Apprentice Development Program launched in 2015 as a training initiative aimed at equipping recently graduated technicians for successful careers at Service King. The program provides young technicians with hands-on training with the industry’s most experienced technicians. Service King intentionally caps each 52-week class at four apprentices, all guided by a dedicated full-time supervisor in the form of an experienced Service King technician.

The program aims to tackle the automotive industry’s declining population in skilled labor. Between 2002-2014, the automotive repair and maintenance field has witnessed a 13 percent drop in total employment.
