St. Vrain Valley automotive students will have a new training certificate option as the district’s Career Elevation and Technology Center becomes a pilot site for a Toyota training program.
Toyota, which offers both high school and college training programs, is piloting a community college level program at three high schools nationwide, including Longmont’s Career Elevation and Technology Center.
“It’s giving students the opportunity to have that technical training,” said automotive teacher Brian Smallwood. “They can start working at a higher pay level. We’ve really been trying to grow the opportunities for students.”
