All Graduates Have Found Full-Time Jobs as Automotive Technicians

  • This marks the 18th MOPAR Career Automotive Program Graduating Class at DMACC
  • Students learn in lab classes at DMACC and apply what they’ve learned at their sponsoring dealership

Three DMACC students have recently graduated from the MOPAR Career Automotive Program (CAP) program and are now employed full-time at their sponsoring dealerships.

Elfego Marroquin of Decorah is an automotive technician at Decorah Kar Auto Group in Decorah.  Logan Schultz of West Des Moines is now working full-time at Stew Hanson Dodge City in Urbandale. Jeff Feilner of Waterloo has been hired at Columbia Chrysler in Columbia, Illinois.

DMACC has established a partnership with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) to provide entry-level training for FCA dealership technicians.  All three have graduated from the 18th MOPAR Career Automotive Program at DMACC.

“In this program, students spend half of their time at DMACC learning the latest automotive technology on current production FCA vehicles and half of their time applying what they’ve learned at their sponsoring FCA dealership,” said John Russell, MOPAR CAP Professor.

At the end of the two-year program, a student earns an Associate of Applied Science degree in Automotive Technology.

MOPAR is the parts, service and customer care organization within Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. The name derives from a combination of letters from the words MOtor and PARts.
