State Farm Donates Vehicle for Training

State Farm Donates Vehicle for Training

State Farm Insurance once again expressed its support of the quality behind Fox Valley Technical College’s training in vehicle refinishing and collision repair by donating a 2010 Honda Insight vehicle to the college.

The hybrid automobile will be used for hands-on training in FVTC’s Vehicle Refinishing & Repair Technology program within the J. J. Keller Transportation Center. The Appleton campus facility recently underwent an expansion as a result of passing a 2012 public referendum, creating additional space to accommodate increased demands for more students entering transportation-related fields.

Nearly 20 students in the program celebrated the arrival of the vehicle along with instructors and three regional State Farm representatives. The students will use the vehicle to enhance skill-building in collision assessment and repair, as well as various paint applications and diagnostic procedures.

The Vehicle Refinishing & Repair Technology program at FVTC has experienced a 100% career placement rate for its graduates over the past four years. Students in the program also put their skills to use for area non-profit agencies that deal with transportation in some capacity.
