Spearheaded by CCC instructor Jared Green, Subaru donated three cars to the college — a 2017 STI, a 2017 Outback and a 2016 Forester — to provide students with hands-on experience. Students work with Subaru factory tools and software along with stand-alone engines and other Subaru car parts.

The hands-on experience, coupled with Subaru's online training program, gives students the ability to earn the entry-level skills that are required of all Subaru technicians. The program also partners with local Subaru service centers to create paid internships and job opportunities for CCC students.

"The new technology in Subaru vehicles is going to change the way we teach car repair at CCC," Green says. "Students get to train on it all for free, then step into a great career. This is another example of how CCC partners with industry to provide education that works for our students."
