GEICO and the Auto Body and Painting Association of Hawaii (ABPAH) recently partnered for a new apprenticeship program aimed at improving training and providing job opportunities in the auto body field.
GEICO kicked off the program by presenting Kuroda’s Auto Body, Inc. with a contribution to its apprenticeship activities at the Waipahu shop. The body shop was selected by ABPAH to pilot this new partnership with GEICO, which will run through Sept. 30.
Hawaii, like the rest of the country, faces a shortage of trained technicians. GEICO is the largest private passenger auto insurer in Hawaii and the fourth largest in the country.
