Pre-Apprenticeship for High School Seniors


The pre-apprenticeship program is a work-based learning model that provides the setting for students to learn manufacturer standards and service protocols directly from the service team at a dealership.  Pre-apprentices work alongside dealership staff, giving them the opportunity to forge relationships in the workplace.

The NTXAD Pre-Apprenticeship program utilizes 4 ASE Entry-Level tests for benchmark purposes along with a behavioral profile for both the student and mentor in order to match a student with the best mentor and dealership for their learning experience.
