    As it rapidly expands, FCA US needs well-trained mechanics (or “technicians”) to work at dealerships.

    The Mopar Career Automotive Program (CAP) LOCAL, set up with the National Coalition of Certification Centers (NC3), has expanded its program with twenty new sites, and plans to add another thirty next year.

    The program prepares technicians to work as Level 1 Technicians on graduation from a two-year school, and ads to the original CAP program created in 1984, which has 31 colleges in major markets.

    The new schools are:

    • Lawson State Community College in Bessemer, AL
    • American River College in Sacramento, CA
    • Evergreen Valley College in San Jose, CA
    • Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids, IA
    • Ivy Tech Community College in Kokomo, IN
    • Washburn Institute of Technology in Topeka, KS
    • Wichita Area Technical College in Wichita, KS
    • Wayne Community College in Goldsboro, NC
    • North Dakota State College of Science in Wahpeton, ND
    • Metropolitan Community College in Omaha, NE
    • Linn Benton Community College in Corvallis, OR
    • Umpqua Community College in Roseburg, OR
    • New England Institute of Technology in Warwick, RI
    • TCAT – Elizabethton in Elizabethton, TN
    • IvyTech Community College – Evansville in Evansville, IN
    • Tyler Junior College in Tyler, TX
    • Hill Community College in Dallas, TX
    • Gateway Technical College (Pilot) in Kenosha, WI

    After reading the short article, I was interested in seeing which east coast markets have schools close-by. Checking the Mopar CAP website's map, it seems odd to have so few CAP schools in the Mid-Atlantic. Philly has a couple not too far away, Pittsburgh and NYC each have one...but nothing in MD, DE, and only one in southern VA. ??? Maybe one or two of those 30 sites due to open next year will cover these areas.
