Serving Our Nation and Our Customers

Launched in early 2019 as a pilot program at Toyota’s North American headquarters in Plano, Texas, M-TEN (Military Technician Education Network) Automotive Technician Apprenticeship Program trains transitioning service members, veterans and reservists to become automotive technicians.

“M-TEN is a smart investment and one of many ways that Toyota acknowledges the value of transitioning service members and veterans, ” says Johnnie Garlington, Senior Manager of Technical Training and T-TEN.

M-TEN participants take 12-weeks of instructor-led training prior to being deployed to a Toyota or Lexus dealership of their choice to serve as an apprentice. Eligible service members and veterans qualify for GI Benefits and receive a monthly housing allowance in addition to apprenticeship wages.

Five transitioning service members are participating in the pilot program, with expansion planned for later in 2019. Toyota’s long-term goal is to generate more than 480 auto technician jobs for transitioning service members and veterans annually.
