typically, you go to a Ford dealer and apply, then once accepted from there, you will most likely train with a senior tech that is very knowledgeable and experienced...then the dealer throws you to the wolves (on your own)..

It will be up to you to push for the training you need. It is true reguardless of where you work, Dealership or independent shop. You have to make your on luck.

Well

The best way is to go to the ASSET or FACT program. Those are both Ford programs. Its getting hard to find a dealer to hire someone without already having Ford Creds but they are out there. I took the FACT program. But with you already having a Diesel education start dropping off resumes.

most dealerships are hungry for young people that are have some type of formal training . i would just walk in with resume most of time they'll sit down and talk too you that day . for the most place they'll going to test you on some smaller project before go right to diesels once get your foot in and they trust you, your golden .

Stroke tech is right on. Nice thing about programs such as ford fact is you get sponsored by a dealership and work on stuff as you are in school. Mostly leading to a carrer with that dealer.

I went to the general motors ASAP program. Great school and real tech as teachers. Unlike UTI, AAI ECT you are going to have a job when you graduate. When I graduated I had 62 credits and an associates in applied science.

I am not going to disagree with Shawn, I went to the ASSET program and have not looked back since. I would recommend this program to anyone.
As gbear said though you have to push for everything you want. stay hungry!!
