How Students Can Become ASE Certified Subaru WRX STI Mechanics

How would you like to be trained to work on a new 2016 Subaru WRX STI? Subaru will help you if you live in NJ.

Subaru launches “Subaru University” that will help train students to be certified to work on 2016 Subaru WRX and WRX STIs. It’s a cool new program Subaru of America (SOA) launched this week. Subaru partnered with Respond Inc. of Camden, NJ. to open up their first “Subaru U”.

What is Subaru University?

It’s a program for NATEF/AYES accredited Secondary and Post-Secondary schools to provide knowledge of Subaru vehicles and systems to prepare students for possible future employment at Subaru dealers nationwide. SOA donated equipment for a new Respond Repair Shop in North Camden so students can begin the training.

Respond’s automotive training program will become part of Subaru-U, granting students access to Subaru web-based training and other benefits that will help them achieve ASE and Subaru Maintenance Tech Certification. Students will be able to get the training needed to land a job at a Subaru dealership and begin working on Subaru WRX/STis and other Subaru vehicles.

Will Subaru open other Subaru Universities?

For now, the only Subaru University is in Camden, NJ where the ribbon cutting took place yesterday. It’s now open to students in this area. If it’s a success, Subaru could take the idea and open up other Subaru U repair shops around the country. It’s a cool way for students in Camden NJ, interested in auto repair, to get trained to work on the newly announced high-performance 2017 Subaru WRX STI.
