How to Get Dodge Dealership Certified

America has had a love affair with Dodge cars and trucks for decades. The brand continues to win awards and wow consumers today, so it’s no wonder that more and more people are seeking out automotive technician jobs where they get the chance to work on Dodge vehicles.

To become a certified Dodge technician and have a chance at auto mechanic jobs at Dodge dealerships and service centers, you’ll need to become a Dodge dealership certified technician. The best way to do this is to attend and complete MOPAR CAP (Career Automotive Program), the two-year intensive auto mechanic school program for all Chrysler, Dodge, RAM, and Jeep brand vehicles. Because Dodge and these other brands all fall under the Chrysler brand, getting Dodge certified means that you can specialize in any of these names with the same education and experience.

Earning your Dodge dealership certification with MOPAR CAP

MOPAR CAP is designed to help Dodge and Chrysler dealers hire qualified entry-level auto technicians right out of school. Because of this, MOPAR has partnered with trade schools, community colleges, and auto mechanic schools around the United States to provide this program to interested students.

Graduates of MOPAR CAP have the skills and experience necessary to be valuable employees of any Dodge dealership without any other experience necessary. While you could skip this program and/or go to another, more generalized auto mechanic school, with MOPAR CAP, you’ll have skills specific to Dodge and Chrysler vehicles that will make you more attractive to dealerships looking to fill auto technician jobs.

What can you expect from MOPAR CAP?

Students enrolled in MOPAR CAP will spend every other semester in the classroom getting the academic background they need to succeed in the automotive world. Students are required to have a Dodge or Chrysler sponsoring dealer, allowing them to spend alternate semesters working at the dealership and gaining hands-on experience. If you cannot get sponsorship at a Dodge or Chrysler dealership, you may also work with a Jeep or RAM dealership instead.

With the knowledge you gain in the classroom and the experience and automotive technician training you get at the dealership, by the time you graduate, you will be intimately familiar with the whole range of Dodge vehicles, and you’ll have the skills and knowledge necessary to be a valuable member of any dealership or service center’s team.

Should you become a Dodge dealership certified technician?

Are you mechanically inclined? Do you have good basic math skills? Are you computer proficient? If so, you could be a great candidate for MOPAR CAP to become a Dodge dealership certified technician. The best candidates can also work well in teams, are detail-oriented, organized, and aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty on the job.

Start your car mechanic career with MOPAR CAP

While there are more auto technician jobs available today than ever before and the demand continues to rise, the best jobs and the most lucrative auto mechanic salary will always go to the best educated and most highly trained technicians. Getting Dodge dealership certified through MOPAR CAP greatly increases your chances of getting a job you’ll love in the automotive industry with room for growth and a great salary.

Nissan Altima - Oil Change - Antioch, Tennessee
I have booked Joe several times at this point and I feel he is very knowledgeable and patient when explaining needed repairs to me. He communicates well and has a pleasant manner and disposition. I have never felt that he would suggest a service that was not needed, which has not always been the case when I used to take my car to a dealership for service.
