WyoTech and Mazda form new partnership


LARAMIE (AP) – Car manufacturer Mazda is partnering with Laramie-founded technical college WyoTech on car repairs.

David Pace is Mazda’s group manager for technical training.

Pace says Mazda is assigning its own instructors to assist WyoTech instructors in implementing training.

WyoTech industry relations specialist John Hurd says WyoTech instructors attended two weeklong trainings sessions with Mazda trainers and would continue to interact as needed.

Students at WyoTech would be allowed to take advanced courses offered to become level-one Mazda-certified technicians.

Pace says the program, which began in July, would provide the opportunity for certified graduates to work at Mazda dealerships anywhere in the country.
