Hyundai Motor America recently donated a 2015 Genesis to Shoreline Community College’s Automotive program to support students in the General Service Technician (GST) program. The Genesis is Hyundai’s top-of-the-line luxury sedan.
Michael Boehm, Director of Dealer Services & Manufacturer Relations for Shoreline’s Professional Automotive Training Center – Dealer Training Academy, said “This donation, facilitated by Jim O’Connor, Senior Manager Field Service Training in the Western Region for Hyundai Motor America, will be used as a training aid that will help students work with the very latest in technology.”
The second-generation Genesis, which Hyundai unveiled in 2013, “features the latest in technology and creature comforts,” said Boehm. “It’s a fun car to work on and represents the type of changing technology we at Shoreline are preparing our students to encounter in the real world.”
The Genesis is indicative of the electronic and mechanical sophistication of today’s vehicles, and thanks to Hyundai’s generous donation our students will graduate knowing they have the skills and knowledge base to work on the most cutting-edge of models the industry has to offer.”
Shoreline’s GST program is a non-manufacturer specific training program. GST students attend two quarters at the Automotive Center followed by one quarter in a workplace setting.
