MINI is one of the fastest-growing segments in the auto industry – and it comes with a fan base that rivals industry powerhouses like Mustang and Corvette. As the company grows, it also needs to grow its technician workforce. Lincoln Tech’s Grand Prairie, TX campus has been selected to be the sole educational provider for MINI training in the entire country!
“We’re proud to now offer MINI training to students from Texas and around the country,” says Campus President Cory Hughes. “MINI is a growing, exciting brand and they’re producing some very advanced vehicles that require uniquely-skilled technicians for maintenance. At Lincoln Tech, we’re honored to have been chosen as one of the first sites in the country to train those future technicians, and we look forward to helping MINI build its workforce.”
MINI Training Helps Give Grads a Head Start
Through the new MINI Service Technician Education Program (STEP), students in Lincoln Tech’s Automotive Technology career training program can apply for this prestigious opportunity, which comes at no additional cost: BMW of North America pays each student’s tuition*! After their four-month MINI STEP training is complete, they can graduate as Master Technicians and start applying for positions at MINI dealerships around the country.
Training includes hands-on experience working with MINI diagnostic codes, brake systems, electrical systems, on-board computers and more. The program will receive dedicated space in the Lincoln Tech auto bays, and MINI will provide vehicles to be used in class.
With more than 19,000 Automotive Technicians needed across Texas, and almost 190,000 around the country, in the next eight years**, now’s the right time to train for a career in the industry. Lincoln Tech in Grand Prairie – which has also offered a BMW STEP program since 2013 – can give you a head start on the road to careers in this growing field with one of the nation’s top auto makers! Automotive Technology with MINI STEP training begins June 5th – contact the campus today to learn more!
