The Chrysler Foundation Donates $4000 to the Cerritos College Automotive Program
The Chrysler Foundation donated $4,000 to support the Cerritos College Automotive Program. The donation is in support of the Automotive Program’s MOPAR College Automotive Program (MCAP) and Chrysler Automotive Program (CAP).
The Cerritos College Chrysler Automotive Program (CAP) is a two-year AA degree and certificate automotive program designed to upgrade the technical competency and professionalism of the dealership technician. The program introduces the student to the very basic to the most complex automotive diagnosis and repair of Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Fiat vehicles.
Every semester, the students will spend 9 weeks of the 18 week semester in the classroom and the lab. The other 9 weeks they will be a Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Fiat Dealership. What the students learn in the classroom will be applied to real life diagnosis and repairs at the dealership. Students get the opportunity to learn on the latest technology that Chrysler is producing. The Chrysler Group provides the vehicles, books and curriculum as well as on-line access to training usually only reserved for journeyman technicians.
"This donation is a big boost financially. It will help us to reach more people. Our partner, the Chrysler Corporation is investing in Cerritos College to attract a new generation of future technicians. With this donation we will continue to train an effective workforce and prepare them for careers in the automotive field,” said Automotive Instructor, Frank Vega.
