DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Houston County Career Academy’s students are getting hands-on experience as part of an agreement with Bondy’s Ford Lincoln.

This program will increase awareness of Ford and Lincoln dealership career opportunity for students.

As high school students enter and start the program, they will get the opportunity to shadow technicians, while some may gain part-time employment.

One of the students tells WDHN this program is a great opportunity.

“From what they’ve offered, I’m pretty sure I can get some good certification and stuff and maybe go work for them,” Dillan Tatum said. “From what I’ve heard there’s a lot of money be involved, and that’s something that can better my future.”

This program was developed with the objective to increase the quality and quantity of high school students entering post-secondary automotive education, and ultimately the automotive technician career.
