Throughout this program, you’ll spend 8 weeks of each semester at CRC being trained by Ford certified instructors, and the other 8 weeks of each semester are spent at a Ford dealership training with their best technicians!

Similar programs at private trade schools may cost over $30,000 plus interest!
