Volvo Launches Tech Program For Veterans 06/01/2020

Volvo Car USA is committing
to the U.S. Armed Forces to give veterans a chance to become certified automotive technicians and start careers in the $1 trillion auto manufacturing and servicing industry.

The
automaker’s new Veteran Technician Careers Program prioritizes U.S. military Veterans and National Guard and Reserve members in the build-up of Volvo Quality Level Technicians and Volvo Hybrid
Specialists across its U.S. retail network. 

Interested personnel may apply online at www.VolvoCarTechs.com, according to the automaker.

The program gives veterans the opportunity to apply the skills they gained in the military toward a civilian automotive career, says Anders Gustafsson, senior vice president Americas and president
and chief executive officer Volvo Car USA.

The four-week program combines eLearning with resident training, followed by a year of on-the-job training at a participating Volvo Cars retailer
through a competency-based, registered apprenticeship program.

Those eligible for GI Bill benefits can receive a monthly stipend to aid in their successful transition from military service to a
new career with a participating Volvo Cars retailer.

The Volvo Car USA Veteran Technician Careers Program will be managed in collaboration with Calibre Systems, Inc., an employee-owned
management consulting and digital transformation company that supports defense, federal/civil, national security and commercial clients.
