EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – Mopar Cap has partnered with Western Technical College to provide soldiers leaving Ft Bliss Army Base with the opportunity to learn skills that could be used for future work .

The official classroom ribbon-cutting and dedication ceremony took place today at the Plaza Circle. The following people attended the leadership of Western Tech; Mopar management, the deputy commanding general of operations from Ft Bliss and members of the El Paso House.

The Service-to-Service program is an Army vocational skills program offered to service members leaving the military. Many transition soldiers might be looking for a career where they can use their skills in areas close to home. Those accepted into this program will undergo extensive Mopar technical training for 10 hours a day, five days a week for 12 weeks. Upon completion of the program, Soldiers will graduate with Level Two certified technical training and be ready to join a participating Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram or Fiat dealership.

“By participating in this joint venture, we hope not only to help transitioning soldiers become employable, but also to address the needs and shortages of skilled technicians. This is a perfect opportunity to be able to give back and help those who have served our country.
