Students in the Cooperative Education Program at Plymouth South High School learned about the vast career options in the collision repair industry during a recent tour of King Collision Center in Plymouth (http://www.kingcollision.com).
Seven Plymouth South students enrolled in the auto body repair program at the high school were able to get a first-hand look at King’s operations; tour the repair shop and ask plenty of questions. They learned about the numerous career opportunities at King Collision Centers, which range from managerial and customer care positions to those in collision repair, paint/refinish and detailing to Licensed Damage Appraiser positions.
“We’re in the process of developing an Apprentice Program at King Collision Centers to mentor teens who are in collision repair and graphic arts programs in high school. Those involved in our Apprentice Program would have the opportunity to work for King on a part-time basis,” explained Bruce King, president of the family owned business.
The company is looking to incorporate an Apprentice Program at their shops in Plymouth and Pembroke and is set to begin talks with the cooperative education program liaisons at the high schools in those towns.
“We’d like to have a program in place by 2010,” noted King.
