Students are gaining in-depth knowledge of the various high-wage, high-demand careers across the state of Hawaii. Some students may be interested in Automotive Service & Repair.
Many students are familiar with cars, but don’t know what goes into building and/or maintaining them. Further, they are unfamiliar with the various job opportunities and specializations related to this field.
During this session, we would like to learn about the various specializations within the field of Automotive Service & Repair. We would also like to learn about the ways in which an individual can advance from entry level into more high skill positions. It would be ideal if a professional, or a team of professionals, could give us mini demonstrations reflective of these various job opportunities and their increasing complexity, both in terms of skill and education, overtime.

We are requesting permission to record, edit and make available each virtual interaction because teachers like to review the session with students for better understanding of material, assign it to students for homework in a blended learning model or just share it with other classrooms that cannot attend a live session. As a professional your volunteering hours go further when a recording is made available for reuse in education.
