Chrysler Donates Two Vehicles to Gwinnett Tech
GTC's Chrysler CAP Training Fleet Grows with Generous Donation
Chrysler Group LLC has donated two new vehicles to Gwinnett Technical College, expanding the training fleet for GTC’s Chrysler College Automotive Program (CAP) with the addition of a 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT and a 2011 Jeep Liberty Limited.
The donated vehicles have been added to the 14-vehicle Chrysler fleet, adding to the hands-on learning and training opportunities for Gwinnett Tech students in the CAP program.
"With Chrysler's valuable donation and support, our students will be able to train on the latest model vehicles and gain real-world experience that will help them to become expert technicians," said John Stahl, Chrysler CAP program director. "This training will benefit our students' job placement potential when they graduate as they will already be extremely familiar with Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge and Ram products."
Chuck Halsig, Chrysler National Manger of Vocation Education, adds, "This donation by Chrysler guarantees that the technicians we train gain the necessary experience to meet the immediate needs of customers promptly and efficiently. Customers and technicians alike have much to gain from this donation. It provides further educational opportunities for technicians and helps offer Chrysler customers a positive ownership experience."
Students in the CAP program are sponsored by an area Chrysler Group dealership and split their time between on-campus instruction and hands-on experience at the dealership.
Graduates of Gwinnett Tech's Chrysler College Automotive Program earn an associate of applied science degree. The college also offers an associate degree in automotive technology, plus a diploma program in automotive fundamentals and certificates in automotive engine performance, automotive suspension and steering, basic automotive and automotive service electrical systems.
GTC offers more than 45 degree, diploma and certificate program options that you can finish in two years or less. For more information on all programs, visit www.GwinnettTech.edu or call 770-962-7580.
