Today’s cars and trucks have more computing power than the first spacecraft that landed on the moon. Naturally, they need the country’s brightest technicians to keep them running.

But with technology rapidly progressing and a generation of technicians nearing retirement, the demand for trained automotive and diesel technicians is increasing while the workforce races to catch up.

That’s why this spring, we’re sending three young adults on a two-week road trip across the country to talk to automotive and diesel technicians, as well as leaders in the transportation industry—and if you’re interested in becoming a professional technician, we want to put you in the driver’s seat.

Take this exciting opportunity to connect with technicians who specialize in everything from race cars to 18-wheelers, and see why this field might be perfect for a hands-on learner like you.
