Icahn Automotive Group partners with UTI Avondale in auto jobs initiative
PHOENIX — An Icahn Automotive Group program to help fill 46,000 projected auto service technician jobs added the Universal Technical Institute’s Avondale campus as a partner.
The Race to 2026 initiative, started by Icahn Automotive Group, already had partnerships with Pep Boys, AAMCO and Precision Tune Auto Care.
UTI Avondale will now receive benefits such as scholarships, tuition reimbursement, access to apprenticeship and internship opportunities and other continuing education opportunities.
Icahn Automotive president of service Brian Kaner, while at an event to announce the partnership, helped to unveil new classrooms and designs at UTI and awarded a $2,500 scholarship from Icahn Automotive to Jeramy Yeagley, a UTI student.
“We’re passionate about offering more students the resources to forge a strong start in the automotive industry and showing them how rewarding a career in the skilled trades can be,” Kaner said in a press release.
Icahn also offers a program that will award scholarships to 12 students in June.
