Workforce Development College Courses

Everyone is looking for qualified technicians. Some NHADA members have looked within their own companies for employees to train with good success! These savvy members have taken advantage of a job training grant that NHADA received from the NH Dept. of Business and Economic Affairs to train existing employees in Automotive Technology at NH community colleges. The attendees receive college credits, and NHADA members are reimbursed half of the tuition through the grant.
NHADA members, you can provide automotive technology college courses to your entry-level employees through this job training grant. The employees will receive college credits at NH community colleges, and NHADA members will be reimbursed half of the tuition. So, take a look at your employees to see who might be a good candidate. Your future tech might just be working in your wash bay!
The employer and not the employee must pay for tuition, books and fees, and they are also eligible for one-half reimbursement. It is up to the member company to submit copies of tuition and book receipts to NHADA to include in the reimbursement request. If the employee picks up and pays for book, show clearly your reimbursement to the student. We will submit all to the NH Job Training Grant for reimbursement.
Associate degree programs are also eligible, providing the above conditions are met.
Please contact the NH Community College Automotive Technology Department Head (See Certificate Courses link below) to verify prerequisites and register.
In addition, please complete the NHADA Job Training Grant Payment Authorization Form and return to both the community college and NHADA.
Automotive Technology certificate courses are listed on the link below, along with links to the five colleges' websites and emails for Auto Tech department heads. Contact them to learn more about the courses and to ensure that your employees are registering for the appropriate classes for their skill levels.
