Job Corps is a no-cost education and vocational training program for young adults aged 16 to 24. For more information about Job Corps, please visit their website.

Through our Advanced AutomotiveTraining programs, UAW-LETC is committed to providing young adults with the opportunity to improve their lives. Individuals interested in advanced training must complete a Job Corps basic trade prior to entrance; however entrance is not limited to those who complete basic auto programs. Those who complete other programs, with a strong interest in an automotive career will also be considered.

Training curriculum is based on the National Automotive Technician Education Foundations (NATEF) task list, and parallels the automotive industry's standards of work ethic, social skills, positive attitude, appearance, initiative, motivation, and the ability to work as part of a team. Students are also offered the resources to prepare for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certification tests prior to graduation (** up to a year spent in the program counts towards the ASE-required two years of on-the-job experience**).

To further prepare for employment, students are encouraged to complete a Work Based Learning (WBL) assignment. The WBL program provides the opportunity for students to link their training with practical, on-the-job activities. UAW-LETC has strong, established partnerships with employers locally and across the nation, further supporting the student with successful WBL assignments and post-graduation job placement. 

As a student transitions towards graduation, career transition specialists (CTS) work closely with them to achieve job placement. CTS staff initiate a job search and schedule interviews in the student's area of choice. Staff also provides assistance with living accommodations, transportation, and other support resources to ensure successful employment.
