As a technician, becoming dealership certified can expand your skills and make you more marketable. You will take courses, both in the classroom and online, and receive hands-on training. Getting certified can also show employers that you have the desire and the skill set that they are looking for. Below we will discuss how you can become certified to work on Chrysler and Jeep vehicles. If you are an automotive mechanic who wants to improve and gain the skills and certifications that Jeep dealerships, other service centers, and automotive technician jobs in general are searching for, you might consider getting Jeep dealership certified.

Jeep training and development

The MOPAR Career Automotive Program (MCAP) is Chrysler’s official training program for Jeep technicians. In this program, you will learn to work on Jeep, Dodge, Chrysler, and other vehicle manufacturers. MOPAR provides on-site training at sponsoring dealerships along with regular rotations between class times. They ensure that you will work with a master technician.

Training

MOPAR CAP aims to benefit the students, the colleges, and the dealerships. Students receive internship experience at a participating dealership. They also receive OEM training based on the most current diagnostic equipment, vehicle technology, and service information. This training allows the student to receive a better paying job with more responsibilities, specifically at FCA US LLC dealerships.

Additional training

You will receive additional training in:

  • Brakes
  • HVAC
  • Engine repair
  • Maintenance and inspection
  • Diesel engine performance
  • Electrical systems and electronics
  • Steering and suspension

Is Auto Mechanic School the Right Choice for Me?

Getting certified will ensure that you are up to date on all the newest automotive technology. Although it is a time commitment, you can earn a salary as you attend classes. Therefore, you might not need to take out loans. You are also getting on the job training while you go to school.

What types of classes will I take?

Classes at MOPAR CAP will focus on:

  • Drive Train/Transmission
  • Fuel and emissions basics
  • Steering and Suspension
  • Engine repair and maintenance
  • Air conditioning
  • Electrical fundamentals
  • Restraints
  • Brake system
  • Maintenance
  • Electrical advance

Through college partners and dealerships, MOPAR CAP works to enhance the public image of dealership careers. They also help to establish local partnerships between dealerships and high schools, and to nurture positive working environments. MOPAR CAP is more extensive and organized than many technician-training programs. Whether you want to learn more about Jeep products for your own benefit or you would like to take your skill set to the next level, becoming a Jeep certified technician could only benefit your career. As many people know, competition in the automotive industry is fierce. Any time that you can add another skill set or learn more about a specific product, you will have an advantage on the competition.
