Paid Automotive Tech program with Free Training

CareerEdge is partnering with Suncoast Technical College (STC) and Gettel Automotive to recruit entry-level automotive technician trainees for jobs at the dealership’s 6 service centers in Sarasota and Bradenton, in combination with a special STC “express” training program.
Gettel Automotive will hire individuals with NO experience at $12 per hour for full or part-time trainee positions. The new hires must then attend a mandatory FREE 10-week training program at STC:

Monday and Wednesday nights

From 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM

July 17th to September 25th

At Suncoast Technical College

4748 S Beneva Rd, Sarasota, FL 34233

Once participants complete the 10-week class, they will be paid $13 per hour full time with benefits, with the potential for additional certifications and growth at Gettel, and through the automotive apprenticeship program. Average wages are $40,000-$50,000.

Please see the attached flyer to distribute to your families and community partners. This is also a great opportunity for high school seniors without college plans to explore a career as a mechanic, which is in high demand.
