“My grandfather, he had a few older classic cars, and I was always interested in how they worked and how he got them to where they are today,” says Schumacher.
Schumacher is getting his own hands dirty in an express shop at a car dealership, often with the help of a virtual reality headset and controllers.
The 19-year-old found this opportunity through the Automotive Apprenticeship Group. AAG is a two-year program that trains people to get their national certification as automotive or diesel technicians.
Pathways into parts, sales, and customer service are also offered. AAG covers the cost of tools, uniforms and tuition — and provides apprentices with a laptop.
“I was gonna go to college originally, but then again, this is a debt-free program and you will save quite the amount of money learning on the job with no debt,” said Schumacher. “It’s quite rare to see something like that, so kind of want to take the opportunity while you have it.””
