Since 2014, Columbian Autocar Corporation (CAC), the official distributor of Kia vehicles in the country, has been teaching the art of auto mechanics to trade school students nationwide. Through its annual on-the-job (OJT) training program, it has helped hundreds of individuals to graduate and land jobs, in the process.
This year is no different. As such, the South Korean automaker is once again opening its doors to qualified students on a mission to be greatly skilled and proficient in automotive mechanics, an advantage when hunting for technically-oriented jobs after graduation.
In detail, the Kia OJT training program starts off with a 2-week crash course on the familiarization of the brand’s various automotive tech. This is held at CAC’s Training Center in Pasay City.
After that, students will undergo a 4-week hands-on training at partner Kia dealerships. This is where they will have the opportunity to tinker with actual units under the watchful eyes of qualified Kia mechanics and technicians.
