Clark College is a perfect T-TEN
Clark College’s automotive program has received the 2011 T-TEN School Recognition Award, presented to the highest performing T-TEN schools across the country. T-TEN is described as “a world-class training program with the ultimate goal of training and placing Toyota and Lexus certified technicians in a dealership position.” Rick Lester, technician development manager for Toyota Motor Sales USA, and Andrew Passage, Toyota’s field representative to its T-TEN partner colleges, traveled from California to Vancouver to present the award during the college’s Board of Trustees meeting on May 23. The award was accepted by automotive technology instructor Jason Crone and Professor Mike Godson.
The award was based on eight specific criteria. Clark exceeded standards in T-TEN graduations, placements in employment at Toyota dealers, and Automotive Service Excellence certifications.
