Tesla START Program Trains Automotive Technicians At Miami Dade College

The high-tech auto repair shop of the future will look very different from the oily garage of the 20th century. Tesla is doing its part to prepare today’s students for tomorrow’s jobs — last summer, the company launched its Student Automotive Technician Program (START), designed to provide a smooth transition from college to full-time employment as EV technicians. Tesla has partnered with six North American colleges to integrate its START program into their curricula. So far, some 125 students around the country have graduated from the program.
