Subaru of America, Inc. announced the launch of Subaru University, through its inaugural partnership with Respond Inc. of Camden, NJ. Subaru University, also called “Subaru-U” is a partnership program designed to combine the talent and resources of Subaru of America, its 600+ retailers nationwide, as well as select NATEF/AYES accredited Secondary and Post-Secondary schools to provide knowledge of Subaru vehicles and systems to prepare students for possible future employment at Subaru retailers nationwide.
On April 29, Subaru-U and Respond Inc., a non-profit advocate of economic independence and the welfare of individuals and families, will open the new Respond Repair Shop in North Camden, with new shop equipment donated by Subaru of America. Respond’s automotive training program will become part of Subaru-U, granting students access to Subaru web-based training and other benefits that will help them achieve ASE and Subaru Maintenance Tech Certification. Through this partnership, Subaru and its retailers, alongside Respond Inc., will take an active role in shaping the local auto technicians of tomorrow.
