Excelsior Automotive Technician Task Force Will Develop Educational Programs to Train Workers for Specific Car Manufacturers
During the opening of the New York International Auto Show at the Javits Center in Manhattan New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced the creation of a new task force that will develop programs for training auto technicians and enabling participants to directly transition into the industry.
"One of the things we're going to do here in this state is change our education system, where the State University of New York is going to offer specialized training in tandem with the manufacturers so that you can go to school and come out as a Nissan-certified technician or a Honda-certified technician or a BMW technician," Governor Cuomo said. "We have over 75,000 technician jobs that are good jobs, high-paying jobs, and we want to educate New Yorkers for those jobs right here in New York. This new task force will set us on that path."
