Lincoln Educational Services Corp. and Bridgestone Retail Operations (BSRO) have expanded their technician training and professional development partnership nationwide. To date, the initiative has been offered at Lincoln Tech’s campus in Denver. Now, BSRO will provide training equipment and sponsor classrooms at Lincoln campuses nationwide. Additionally, BSRO will offer scholarship grants to Lincoln students.
The goal is to attract more students to Lincoln Tech’s programs and to develop entry-level techs for BSRO, which operates more than 2,200 tire and automotive service centers across the United States under the brands Firestone Complete Auto Care, Tires Plus, Hibdon Tires Plus and Wheel Works.
“In any given month, we’re looking to hire hundreds of technicians around the country,” said Blye Hunsinger, director of talent acquisition at BSRO. “These are excellent opportunities for skilled technicians to begin careers with BSRO and join Bridgestone, which is a large global corporation.”
Lincoln has 23 campuses in 14 states.
