DALLAS (CBSNewsTexas.com) – If you’re looking for a career and you like getting your hands dirty while working with cars and trucks, there’s a new apprenticeship program here in North Texas that’s putting people on the road to careers as auto technicians. 

Catherine Alvarado loves working on cars. But she never got the proper training she needed.

“I was looking for a career I worked at other shops,” said apprentice Catherine Alvarado. “And it was very different I wasn’t really growing as a person and I wanted to challenge myself.”

That’s when she found the Automotive Apprenticeship Group, or AAG. As an apprentice in the program, she’s getting paid hands-on training as an auto technician at Southwest International Trucks in Dallas.

“They’ve guided me and I feel like I have the support that I never had before, so I feel like I have what it takes to be successful in this,” said Alvarado.”
