Fresno City College is only one of eight new sites across the nation for the Toyota Motor North America’s Technician Training & Education Network (T-TEN) program. It is being formally launched at the FCC Automotive Technology program in October.
The Technical Education College Support Elite (TECS) program now has 44 total locations to help fill the pipeline for well-trained, certified technicians with hands-on automotive diagnosis and repair education. TECS designates Advanced Automotive Technology (AAT) programs at certain locations as certified training centers for Toyota and Lexus vehicles.
“The Fresno City College Automotive/Diesel/Advanced Vehicle Technology Department is very fortunate to be able to create an Educational Partnership with Toyota Motor North America. Our department is training technicians for today and tomorrow’s advanced technology vehicles. We want our graduates to grow into a career by taking steps in their learning process during internships provided by our OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) partners!,” said Martin Kamimoto, automotive technology/training instructor.
T-TEN technician training is available with different programs, degrees and certificate options, and the typical program length is two years. Once participants complete the program, they have the ability to apply for open service technician positions at Toyota or Lexus dealerships, or any automotive service operation, including independent service and repair shops.
Since its inception in 1986, the T-TEN program has graduated nearly 12,000 students. Through its Military Technician Education Network (M-TEN) in partnership with Hiring Our Heroes and the Department of Labor, active duty service members and veterans can participate in an intensive 12-week automotive technician training program and earn credits towards becoming a certified technician.Learn more about the FCC Automotive Technology department
