Auto Tech School Opens Accelerated Program

By Staff Writer December 08, 2021

NVI Institute Blairsville is launching innovative, accelerated programs in auto and diesel technology to get technicians on the job more quickly.

NVI Blairsville’s first six-month sessions for aspiring auto and diesel technicians begin Jan. 3.

The goal for NVI is to help employers address shortages in skilled workers while helping students position themselves to take well-paying jobs in long-term careers with major automotive, truck, and heavy equipment suppliers and dealers.

By focusing on the essential skills sought by employers, NVI cut students’ expenses and the time it takes to start work.

“A student in the program here at NVI is going to be put through the diesel or auto technology course in six months and be ready to hit the ground running,” said Adam Duplin, diesel program coordinator. “In developing the school, we worked with teams of employers who told us exactly what they are looking for in a program.”

“You can walk out of high school, graduate in June from high school, start here in July and be done by December and be working in January in the field,” said Jack Fetsko, NVI automotive program coordinator. “Every repair or manufacturing facility right now is looking for technicians. You can make a really good living at it.”
