“We try to keep up with new technology and we had some issues with air conditioning and also with air brakes. I thought going over the basics and going over with new technology, what’s out there currently, would help our mechanics. Obviously, we want complete repairs, safe repairs and efficient repairs and that was one of the reasons we went with Western Tech.”
Gabe Silva, Fleet Manager Dona Ana Fleet Department
“We chose Western Tech because the Western Tech facility is state of the art, cutting edge technology. Everything that we want our students to learn is available right here locally. We thought we would get the biggest bang for our buck being able to do training right here in El Paso.”
Tony Combs, Advanced Automotive High School teacher Ysleta Independent School District (El Paso, TX)
