Mitigating the shortage of technicians with education and scholarships.
The automotive and truck retail industries continue to face a shortage of service technicians. About 39,000 new service techs graduate from U.S. career technical colleges and training programs each year. Yet the industry needs to replace nearly 76,000 techs each year to keep up with retirements and new job demand. That’s leaves an annual shortfall of about 37,000 trained techs, NADA estimates.
As part of NADA Foundation’s Workforce Initiative, NADA seeks to promote service technician careers and recruit the next generation of dealership service technicians through access to training and scholarships.
