Program Description

Sponsored by Chrysler Corporation, the CAP program combines classroom instruction with hands-on experience in a local Chrysler dealership. Students in the CAP program gain valuable real life experience by working as actual employees of a modern automotive dealership service department. Students are paid during the dealership work experience to help offset the cost of attending college. Graduates receive not only an Associate in Applied Science degree from Erie Community College but also certifications from Chrysler Corporation. These certifications are recognized by Chrysler dealerships across the country.Department Notes
