A wave of 32 highly motived apprentice technicians have officially joined the Service King family as the organisation further expands the reach of its popular Apprentice Development Programme.
Service King officials celebrated ‘Signing Days’ for its newest teammates as the training and development programme officially expanded to a roster of 115 active apprentices at 32 different repair centres across the US.
The Apprentice Development Programme, which has more than doubled in size since its launch in 2015, provides aspiring auto body repair technicians an immersive 52-week hands-on training programme inside Service King repair centres. Each class is intentionally capped at four apprentices, features a detailed curriculum, and fosters a focused learning environment alongside a dedicated Service King Apprentice Supervisor.
‘We are thrilled at the continued success and growth of this unique programme,’ said Tyra Bremer, Service King vice president for talent development. ‘The Apprentice Development Programme, we believe, is a creative response to the demand for highly-skilled and highly-motivated technicians across the collision repair industry. We have seen tremendous feedback from the first graduates of the Service King Apprentice Development Program and look forward to the impact the program continues to make in the lives of aspiring technicians across the US.’
Service King’s official Signing Days took place at Service King locations in Houston, including UTI’s campus, Dallas, San Juan Capistrano (California), Seattle, Las Vegas, Chicago and Bryant (Arkansas).
