Albuquerque Chambers of Commerce Welcome Additional Automotive Training

IntelliTec’s new training fills a strong demand in the city. Before IntelliTec’s Automotive Technician program launched, Albuquerque had only one other college offering automotive training. This program began in August of 2015 and currently has 42 students enrolled. An additional 20 more students are scheduled to begin classes November 16th.

“Without exception, everyone is pleased to have this new training available. I’ve met with two separate Chambers [Greater Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce and the Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce], and the feedback is supportive and enthusiastic.” He’s excited with the depth and breadth of the instructional staff and feels lucky to have such an outstanding Program Supervisor to lead the way.

IntelliTec Continues a One-On-One Student Approach at New Campus

Yelton supports the college’s student-centered approach, which begins at the top of its organization, “Everyone is truly focused on fostering a student centric environment. It’s a core belief to treat the IntelliTec ‘family’ with encouragement and support.”

As Yelton settles into his new role, he finds IntelliTec’s culture reflects Albuquerque’s culture. “I’ve lived in this community for a number of years and have found, although it’s culturally diverse, people are accepting of one another. The relaxed and informal nature of the people allows everyone to ‘live and let live.’”
