Out of a dynamic partnership with NAPA and Genuine Parts, the NAPA Auto Center provides training for men and women in 10 areas of auto mechanics. When students complete the program, they graduate with a light repair certification and more control over their future.
The NAPA Auto Center
In November of 2014 Genuine Parts and NAPA outfitted 8,000 square feet of City of Refuge warehouse space with state-of-the-art tools, lifts, and parts needed to offer auto tech repair training and certification. The program is a five-month intensive program requiring a 40-hour per week commitment. Students engage in classroom and online training in the mornings and in-shop training in the afternoons. Students participate in performing bulb replacement, brake jobs, diagnostics, tune-ups, water pump replacement, front-end work, and tire mounting, balancing, and alignment.
