The Rio Grande Valley is about to become the next pioneer in the automotive service industry as Southern Careers Institute (SCI) is set to expand their Automotive Service Technician Apprenticeship to Pharr, Texas – with a focus on preparing the valley’s youth with real-world job skills.
In partnership with local dealerships, SCI is launching this new learning experience to manage and deliver a hybrid program that is perfectly suited for today’s student. This apprenticeship program will provide students with engaging, interactive classroom content while the apprenticeship develops the students into proficient, dedicated team members who understand the needs and culture of the sponsoring company. In addition, the apprenticeship provides the students an opportunity to earn a wage as an employee of the dealership.
"SCI is extremely excited to bring this innovative program to Pharr, Texas," said Jacob Mayhew, CEO of Southern Careers Institute. "By providing traditional classroom instruction combined with a hands-on apprenticeship taught by automotive service experts, we’re working on teaching relevant skills which match employers’ needs. Those real-world skills prepare our students to be successful once they reach the workforce." Southern Careers Institute will also be looking to expand the apprenticeship program to other campuses throughout the Lone Star State.
