The Associate of Applied Science in the Mopar Career Automotive Program (CAP) provides training for students aspiring to become automotive technicians for Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram dealerships. Specific Chrysler training is presented to apprentice student technicians as they apply learned content to a co-op work experience. Students attend classes for half a semester and then apprentice at a Fiat Chrysler Automobile sponsoring dealership the other half. Students are paid for work rendered during the co-op experience. Upon graduation, students will receive hundreds of hours of official Chrysler training credits that are recorded in the corporation's training database. Graduates should be 85% to 90% trained towards meeting the certification requirements for a Chrysler Master Technician. Graduates will also receive an Associate of Applied Science from Sinclair along with a job opportunity from the sponsoring dealer. This degree program contains one or more embedded certificates which will be automatically awarded when the certificate requirements are completed. If you do not want to receive the embedded certificate(s), please notify Registration and Student Records at firstname.lastname@example.org.
