The Audi Veterans to Technicians program was highlighted this week at the 2015 Washington D.C. Auto Show. It happened on January 27 as part of a sponsorship of the Military Tribute Day during the auto show to highlight Audi’s involvement in supporting veterans. Since the program was launched back in the spring of 2013, the company’s brand dealerships across the United States have hired 162 former U.S. military personnel in various careers such as parts specialists, service consultants and service technicians.
At the moment, 255 of the total 283 Audi dealerships in United States are participating in the Audi Veterans to Technicians program. To be eligible for this program a candidate must have a certain level of automotive or aviation mechanical experience as well as a clear personal record, including good driving records. Those who apply for a job will receive hands-on coaching and interview preparation assistance while those who get hired have to attend the Audi Fast Track Training Program in order to become certified.
Moreover, those who are hired through the Audi Veterans to Technicians program qualify for a special tool purchase program which is being sponsored by Audi and Snap-on Tools.
