Students in the Ford Automotive Student Service Educational Training program and Automotive Technology program at Southeast Community College’s Milford Campus now have two new cars to train on: A 2018 Mustang GT convertible and a 2017 Subaru BRZ coupe. SCC was approved last year to be part of the Subaru U training program.

“It’s designed to allow students access to Subaru factory web-based training in addition to their SCC curriculum,” said Kevin Uhler, Automotive Technology program chair at Milford. “The students could then earn some factory training credentials from Subaru while a student at SCC. Although we are in the very early stages of this implementation, Subaru contacted us to donate this car for training and to build excitement for the program and the Subaru brand.”

Uhler said students will be able to work on these cars until the vehicles are no longer relevant. Practicing with the current automotive technology will better allow them to work in the field after they graduate.

“These two cars in particular build enthusiasm among the current and potential students,” Uhler added. “These donations indicate the huge value industry puts on newly trained talent in the technical fields. The demand is strong for trained technicians.” 

SCC’s Lincoln Campus is expected to get a Subaru as well. For more on the automotive programs, click on our website at: https://www.southeast.edu/automotive/
