Reminder: GCADA Apprentice Service Technician Grant

Automobile Dealers’ Educational Assistance Foundation

2016 “Grow Your Own”
Apprentice Service Technician Grant

Application Deadline is July 15th

For the third year and in a continued effort to assist Member Dealers in grooming technicians to become long-term staff members with established careers in their dealership, the Greater Cleveland Automobile Dealers’ Educational Assistance Foundation Board is once again pleased to announce the “Grow Your Own” Apprentice Service Technician Grant.

The grant is available to dealerships that hire apprentice service technicians from qualifying post-secondary schools. Your Association’s Foundation is of the belief that a small investment will go a long way in protecting our service industry for years to come.

The employee must be a graduate (within three months) or currently considered a second year student at a qualified school. Pre-approved schools are Stark State University or Cuyahoga Community College, with other potential schools by request and at the discretion of the Board. The employee must also work full-time at your dealership for a period of two months. Applications will not be accepted after July 15th.

If you are interested in employing an apprentice from one from the qualifying schools, or if you have any questions regarding this program, please contact Dennis Rose at 440-746-1500 or by email at drose@gcada.org.
