March 9, 2016––The Collision Repair Education Foundation announced Wednesday support from the Craftsman brand and Sears Auto Centers at the Education Foundation's upcoming collision career fairs around the country, as well as providing collision students with Craftsman tools. 

“It’s a natural for Sears and the Craftsman brand to support auto mechanic students,” said Tom Park, president of Kenmore, Craftsman and DieHard brands at Sears Holdings. “Because the Craftsman brand is the nation’s most trusted tool brand and our Craftsman Club Tech Student Discount Program offers up to 50 percent off a student’s first mechanics’ tool set and storage purchase. In addition, Sears Auto Centers serve Americans through more than 600 locations nationwide. We’re happy to help tech students get their careers started in the right direction while using Craftsman tools.”

The collision career fairs are open to all industry members. Sponsorship funds raised through these career fairs help provide collision school programs with the needed tools, equipment, and supplies to help students graduate as qualified, skilled entry-level employees.
