Shoreline’s MOPAR CAP (College Automotive Program) recently received a donation valued at approximately $30,000 in the form of a 2014 Jeep Cherokee from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. This donation will serve as a training tool for MOPAR CAP students and will be used to demonstrate the type of vehicles and equipment Shoreline students will work on during their dealership experience.
The Jeep was delivered to Shoreline’s facilities a couple of weeks ago and has already made its way onto the training room floor.
Michael Boehm, Director of Dealer Services & Manufacturer Relations for Shoreline’s Professional Automotive Training Center – Dealer Academy, said “We’re so excited about and grateful for this generous donation. It’s having the opportunity to work on top of the line and current models like this Jeep that keeps our students in high demand upon graduation. They’re more than ready for real-world employment because they’ve trained on the latest vehicle technology.”
“We want to thank our partners at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles for their support of our program and our students,” he continued.
MCAP graduates earn a two-year, Associate in Applied Arts & Sciences (AAAS) degree from Shoreline Community College, which is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities. MCAP and Shoreline work closely together to train students utilizing Chrysler-specific automotive diagnostic processes and repair procedures to develop the skills necessary to be successful Chrysler Group technicians.
