Kicking into High Gear at the Transportation Technology Career Fair

New England Tech’s annual Transportation Technology Career Fair was held on Thursday, March 3, 2016 on the Access Road Campus in Warwick. Over 30 companies attended this year’s event, making it our largest employer turnout to date for the transportation event! A mix of automotive, automotive service management, auto body and marine companies were able to speak with current students and alumni about their businesses and share information about potential job opportunities, all while learning about the kinds of skills a New England Tech graduate brings to the table. For the students and graduates, it was a great opportunity to network and build relationships with prospective employers and learn about the many different paths their careers could lead to. A few representatives were New England Tech alumni themselves; Aaron Beltram (class of ’15) from Bald Hill Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram Kia, Seth Cassidy (class of ’98) from Balise Ford of Cape Cod, and Rick DaSilva (class of ’03) from Speedcraft Volkswagen.

Local High School Automotive Students Score Big

12-Automotive Winner

Justin Suttles

The annual Ocean State Automotive Contest, hosted by New England Tech in cooperation with the Rhode Island Automobile Dealers Association, is a chance for high school seniors to demonstrate their technical abilities in the automotive field.  This competition involves different work stations in which students are asked to complete certain tasks or to troubleshoot technical “bugs” within a 10 minute time limit that is set for each station. The individual workstations include brakes, steering and suspension, electrical and electronics, heating and air conditioning, engine repair, parts identification and engine performance.

This year’s Rhode Island winners from Warwick Area Career and Technical Center, Justin Suttles and Shawn Teague, received a one year tuition scholarship to New England Tech and a set of Snap-On tools. The second and third place teams were awarded $1500 and $1000 tuition scholarships respectively.  Justin and Shawn earned the right to compete at the National Automotive Dealers Competition sponsored by the Greater New York Automotive Dealers Association in New York City.

In addition, Justin and Shawn won first place at the state level for the Ford/AAA Student Auto Skills competition held at Firestone Tire in Warwick, RI. The competition criteria was similar to that of the Ocean State Automotive Contest.  This dynamic duo produced a flawless vehicle at the state contest which afforded them the opportunity to travel to Ford World Headquarters in Dearborn, Michigan, for the national competition held in June.

As Justin stated, “Knowing that I could have a year free of schooling is opening new doors for me and it’s a great experience. New England Tech was really encouraging and had really high standards during the competitions. They have a great degree program.”

Automotive grad talks ProTech

The Rhode Show showcases how New England Tech Automotive Associate degree graduate Anthony Bodine’s ProTech Automotive Services.  ProTech is not your average Automotive Service shop. Bodine is proud to help customers solve sometimes the most complicated auto problems.  As cars continue to get more and more sophisticated when something goes wrong it isn’t always clear what the cause of problem actually is. At ProTech, the technicians are trained to diagnose the problem based on your vehicles symptoms and are able to make appropriate repairs.

New England Tech is also proud of the success Anthony has had at ProTech but also that Anthony comes to New England Tech Career Services when he has positions available at ProTech because he knows first hand the quality education our students receive.
