The Mopar Career Automotive Program (CAP) provides students with more than a general automotive education. By incorporating the Mopar® CAP curriculum, DCTC provides students the ability to turn their passion into a career.
Mopar CAP students gain the training and fundamental knowledge they need to work on some of the hottest vehicles in the industry from the legendary Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep®, Ram, FIAT® and Alfa Romeo brands. Mopar CAP certification gives students a competitive edge and shows dealers they have the fundamental qualifications to be a successful automotive career at a Mopar dealership. With educators certified by Stellantis, Mopar CAP combines hands-on experience and classroom instruction.
ACCUPLACER Test: Applicants to this program must take the ACCUPLACER Test unless they have a prior two- or four-year degree. Applicants that do not achieve the minimum scoring requirements may need to take additional prep courses before being accepted into the program.
Applicants to this program must be sponsored by a Mopar dealership. MCAP faculty will provide interested students a “Dealer Sponsorship Form” for the dealer contact to complete. The MCAP shop who has agreed to sponsor the student must complete this form. After the form is completed, it should be returned to the MCAP faculty.
The Mopar® Career Automotive Program is accredited by the ASE Education Foundation.
This program offers Credit for Prior Learning (CPL). Seek credit for life experience to accelerate your progress toward a degree, diploma, or certificate. Visit the Credit for Prior Learning page to learn more.
