What is Subaru-U?
Unlike other OEM educational programs, Subaru-U is designed to create a unique partnership between Subaru of America, the retailer, and high performing ASE Education Foundation accredited secondary and post-secondary schools. By infusing Subaru's Web-Based Training (WBT) into the existing curriculum, students have the ability to take most of the entry-level training that is required of all Subaru technicians. Students can even opt to take a Subaru Level 2 Instructor Led Training Test-out and advance their training even further. Students at participating Subaru-U partner schools can gain valuable knowledge of Subaru vehicle systems that can better prepare them for possible employment in any one of approximately 600 Subaru retailers nationwide. Students that are apprenticed at a Subaru retailer and participating instructors are also eligible for additional training through Subaru. Retailers have the ability to take an active role with their local partner schools in shaping the technicians of tomorrow. There is no cost to the student to participate in this program. Other advantages of this program are in development and will be released as they are made available.
