I’m going to tell you a little about my experience while attending GTTI’s Automotive Service Technician Pre-Apprenticeship program. At the time I was unemployed looking for work and I had no direction in my life or what I wanted to do. I’ve always had a strong interest in cars. I just took it as a hobby or a passion of mine but never thought that I could change that into a career. I was accepted into the program!
I received transportation from my place to the facility every day free of charge. We received lots of training and certifications which look really good on a resume. Academic upgrading was very helpful too. I’ve been out of high school for many years and forgot a lot of basic school skills. After the academic upgrading we were all off to college: it seemed like a pretty big step because there was a lot of troubled youth in within the program, including myself. After college, we all got to have an interview with reps from the automotive industry. I would just like to add that without the GTTI training program I would not be where I would be in life right now.
I feel very blessed to be able to say that I was in such a program like this. I would like to say thank you to Tammy and all the other staff that worked at GTTI to help us through our career path.
