MCCTC Students Get Hands-On EV Training

CANFIELD, Ohio — Tyler Opritza is an automotive technology student at the Mahoning County Career and Technical Center who believes very soon there will be plenty of opportunities to have a career working on EVs.

A student who graduates from the auto tech program will still work on gas or diesel-powered engines, but with the rise in popularity of EVs among consumers, MCCTC’s superintendent, John Zehentbauer says technicians will be needed and they are in a good place to provide them.

“As you know it was one percent two or three years ago, now we’re at three or four percent, and if it hits ten or twelve percent, they’re definitely going to need technicians,” says Zehentbauer.
