Curriculum

The MOPAR® CAP curriculum is designed to provide each student with hands-on experience both in the classroom and at their sponsoring dealership. The curriculum at MOPAR CAP colleges is based on the college automotive technology curriculum, modified to include FCA US LLC-specific technology. In addition to the student receiving an associate’s degree, successful completion of the college MOPAR CAP curriculum earns each student a substantial number of training credit hours in the FCA US LLC Technical Training Skill Core Curriculum.

Academic courses included within the associate’s degree option ensure the development of a more rounded and technically proficient individual as they enter the workforce. These classes complement the automotive course materials used at MOPAR CAP Colleges that are the same materials used at FCA US LLC training centers to train existing dealership technicians.
