What is Tech Pathways?

The Hanover Auto Team is excited to offer a one-of-a-kind hands-on apprenticeship program for students in the south central PA area. Students will be taught the Hanover Auto Team way!

  • Thorough
  • Efficient
  • Collaborative
  • Honorable

Students who are interested in entering the automotive industry as a certified technician after graduation from high school have the unique opportunity to work side-by-side with current HAT technicians in one of our four dealerships (Hanover Toyota, Hanover Nissan, Hanover Volkswagen, or Hanover Mazda).

In total, Tech Pathways is a two-year commitment. The program offers classroom work as well as hands-on experience during the first year. Students will spend 2 hours per day with our trainers and they will receive high school credit for the time spent in the program. In year two, the apprentice will be assigned a mentor to work with as they continue to build their skill-set.

Benefits to joining the Tech Pathways:

  • Debt-free opportunity to be trained in a reliable career path
  • Knowledge of general automotive maintenance and required skills
  • Professional interpersonal relationships and networking opportunities

Students should be willing to commit to the program before the beginning of their senior year. We suggest they start planning early and attend one of our free “Intro to Automotive Careers” days during their junior year. Guidance counselors and school administrators are welcome to pass on this information to interested students.
