The transportation industry is in need of qualified well-trained individuals to meet the automotive technology needs of residents in the Greater Philadelphia region. The Toyota T-TEN program prepares students for a career in the transportation technology field repairing Toyota and Lexus vehicles. T-TEN stands for Technician Training and Education Network.
The program incorporates substantial work-based learning opportunities, as students are employed by Greater Philadelphia-area Toyota and Lexus dealerships as a requirement of completing the T-TEN program. This puts the student in an excellent position to complete the program with little to no debt while placed in a dealership that could lead to a permanent position after program completion.
The T-TEN program is open to students in the region who live outside of Philadelphia County. All students admitted into the T-TEN program will pay in-county tuition rates. However, the T-TEN program is select and enrollment in the program is limited. The program is restricted to full time students who are college ready, have a valid driver's license, pass a drug screening, have or can acquire an approved tool kit (financial assistance may be available) and interview with the Program Coordinator.
Work-based learning is an essential component of the Toyota T-TEN program, with student class and work schedules alternating in a coordinated manner. Prior to acceptance into the Toyota T-TEN program, student applicants will be connected to participating dealerships seeking to hire paid interns from the program. Students must receive an internship offer from a participating dealership prior to acceptance into the program.
The Toyota T-TEN program is located at the Career and Advanced Technology Center (CATC).
