Subaru-U Joins CCC

Oct 12, 2017, 14:41 PM by CCC Staff

OREGON CITY -- Students at Clackamas Community College (CCC) are now training to be Subaru technicians for free thanks to a new program. The CCC Automotive Department partnered with the car manufacturer to bring the Subaru University (Subaru-U) training program to the college.

Spearheaded by CCC instructor Jared Green, Subaru donated three cars to the college -- a 2017 STI, a 2017 Outback and a 2016 Forester -- to provide students with hands-on experience. Students work with Subaru factory tools and software along with stand-alone engines and other Subaru car parts.

This hands-on experience, coupled with an infusion of Subaru's online training into CCC's existing curriculum, gives students the ability to earn the entry-level training that is required of all Subaru technicians.

"The new technology in Subaru vehicles is going to change the way we teach car repair at CCC," Green said. "Students get to train on it all for free, then step into a great career. This is another example of how CCC partners with industry to provide education that works for our students."

This program also partners with local Subaru service centers to create paid internships and job opportunities for CCC students.

To enroll in the Subaru-U program at CCC, email jared.green@clackamas.edu or call 503-594-1453. To learn more about programs at CCC, visit www.clackamas.edu.
