The Future is Waiting.

For 2022, the traditional STEP Program has been expanded from 16 to 24 weeks and all students will be paid to attend. Held at BMW National workshops across the country, each program is designed to provide mentorships to enhance the skills and knowledge of moderately experienced technicians so that once students graduate, they will be Certified Level trained and will be able to immediately make a bigger impact. Students will get more hands-on and workshop administrative process experience including working with DMS systems, warranty and parts.

Looking for the best of the best.
