Tesla Start was first available last year at Central Piedmont Community College in North Carolina. It’s now offered at schools in San Jose, the LA area, Seattle, Charlotte, Miami, and New York. It’s a 12-week automotive training program for students who will eventually work at Tesla Service Centers —facilities scattered across the country that service Tesla’s all-electric cars, like the Model 3 sedan. In the accelerated program, students obtain technical skills, perform hands-on labs, and learn about electric vehicle technology. Each week they’re taught about a different aspect of the vehicle, like how to work with a high-voltage system. After the program, students are placed at service centers around the U.S.
