You’re Invited! FREE Auto Lube Fast-Track Training

SARASOTA COUNTY, February 10, 2021 – Suncoast Technical College and CareerEdge have partnered with Sunset Automotive Group and Wilde Honda Sarasota to offer a free fast-track Auto Lube program that will begin in March.

This training addresses the needs of automotive employers that want to hire and rapidly train people for a very specific skill set. Employers can then develop these employees further over time through internships and apprenticeship programs. Program applicants must first apply for employment with one of the participating dealerships – either Sunset Automotive Group or Wilde Honda Sarasota. Applicants will be hired and included in the program at the discretion of the dealerships.

Program graduates can earn an average starting wage of $13.00 per hour with the participating employers. No prior technical experience is required. The program will also include CareerEdge’s Bridges to Careers soft skills training and career coaching. All those interested in potentially participating must apply with the dealerships by Monday, March 15th.

Classes will run every Tuesday and Wednesday evening from Tuesday, March 23rd through Wednesday, June 9th. Classes will run from 5:30 PM to 9:00 PM
