Toyota is expanding its certified technician program to ensure that when you bring your car in for service, it gets the best possible care — whether it’s at a Toyota dealership or not.
The automaker’s T-TEN program (Technician Training & Education Network) works with local organizations and schools to offer students training that meets the highest standards in the automotive industry. Students can attend the program at 36 locations in the United States, which is now being expanded to another eight locations.
Students attending Toyota’s certified technician program not only learn how to work on Toyota and Lexus vehicles — they also earn an associate’s degree and ASE certification. The program takes about two years to complete, though a 12-week crash course is offered to veterans and active-duty service members.
Since the program was founded in 1986, nearly 12,000 students have graduated. And while it acts as pipeline for new Toyota and Lexus service technicians who really know what they’re doing, students are free to apply for any other automotive service operation.
At Jordan Toyota, our technicians pride themselves on their expertise. It’s nice to see that Toyota is working to train the next generation of technicians.
