There will be 3.6 million high school graduates in the United States this year. We don’t need them all. But we do need thousands of them as automotive technicians. The questions are where do we need them, how do we recruit them and how do we train them?
In 2022, professional training is a critical must. As an industry, we don’t train nearly enough. To retain good employees, they need to know that they are being paid fairly and have been given the tools to do the job right.
The Tire Industry Association (TIA) is partnering with a mobile training platform to deliver TIA-approved training in daily, five-minute sessions. The goal is to increase knowledge retention for technicians who have completed a TIA 200- or 300-level course.
