July 13, 2016—Service King Collision Repair Centers announced Tuesday that it recently graduated its inaugural class of apprentice technicians through the Service King Apprentice Development Program. 

“This is an extremely proud moment in the young careers of these talented technicians who represent the future of Service King and our industry,” said Jeff McFadden, Service King president. “The Apprentice Development Program was built to provide an unprecedented avenue to rewarding careers as body technicians across our family of repair centers. We couldn’t be more proud of this class for paving the way for future technicians in the program and for taking the first step in a long, promising career.”

The class of three body technicians successfully completed a 52-week hands-on development program under a dedicated Apprentice Technician Supervisor at Service King’s Northeast Dallas location to graduate from the program. This class is the first of nine active Apprentice Development Program pilots set to graduate technicians across the country this summer. Service King is on pace to graduate 50 apprentice technicians from its program by the end of the year. 

All three graduates will assume full-time roles at Service King locations across the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
