Using Knowledge Anywhere’s eLearning system, NewFordTech’s ACE program has grown about 80% in the last year. So how did Ford get so much growth? To find out, let’s meet the players and the situation….
Ford ACE Program
Ford Automotive Career Exploration (ACE) is a partnership program between Ford Motor Company, Ford/Lincoln dealerships, and secondary and post-secondary educational institutions. The intent of the program is to raise awareness and increase interest in career opportunities within the automotive industry, ultimately as a trained service technician.
An eLearning solution, Knowledge Anywhere helps train over 2 million learners worldwide through Learning Management Systems (LMS), Virtual Reality training, course development, and specialized training tools, including QuickQuiz and Scormify.
With over 482 involved dealerships and 556 schools, how can Ford effectively and consistently train students, while there is increasingly shrinking labor force?
“Through access to our custom-tailored content and training, young adults find that a career as an automotive technician can be exciting, challenging, and rewarding. In today’s world, the percentage of young adults that are aware of career opportunities in the skilled trades has been shrinking. ACE provides these individuals with that information and the opportunity to begin a career with the local Ford or Lincoln dealership.”
- Paul Peters, ACE Program Coordinator
This partnership has created a Win – Win – Win – Win solution, helping Ford Motors, Knowledge Anywhere, ACE students, and Lincoln dealerships all around North America.
