PPCC Students Learn About Industry Careers During "Test-Drive" Event in CO KOAA

Colorado Springs, CO, area students got a chance to learn about careers in the auto industry on Wednesday, Oct. 16.

 

Pikes Peak Community College (PPCC) held its first-ever "Test-Drive" event, where more than 400 high school students and PPCC students got the chance to see a car show put on by local dealers and hear from experts about careers in high demand.

 

"This includes automotive service technicians, all the folks that are involved in the dealership, but also programs such as automotive collision repair and paint and diesel mechanics," said Chelsy Harris with PPCC.

 

Students involved in STEM technologies also attended the event.

 

Experts say that one reason for the demand is baby boomers leaving the industry.
