Auto Body Repair program graduates complete prestigious Service King apprenticeship

Two Metro Tech Auto Body Repair program graduates – Willie Cramer Jr. and Delbert Butler – recently graduated from Service King’s prestigious 52-week Apprentice Development Program.  Both were selected for the program after Service King visited the Auto Body Repair program last year and saw a car restoration project the two men were working on in class. They were offered apprenticeships on the spot and are only the second class to graduate since inception of the program.

The Service King Apprentice Development Program is designed to equip the next generation of collision repair technicians, as there has been a shortage in recent years. The paid training program provides apprentices the opportunity to work side-by-side with Service King master techs who “put their heart into training new technicians”, according to Service King Apprentice Development Director Roy Viral. During a graduation reception held for Willie and Delbert, Mr. Viral and Executive Vice President of Operations Brent McKinney praised both men on their work ethic and commitment. They will excellent compensation; receive a $6,000 tool set and full company benefits.

The Metro Tech Auto Body Repair program is located at Metro Tech’s South Bryant Campus (SBC) and taught by Zac Smith.
