Minnesota Careers in Automotive Repair and Service (MNCARS) is a workforce initiative created by a cross-section of automotive industry representatives, including independent repair shops, multiple-shop operators, suppliers, technical college administrators and other industry organizations. Its goal is to ensure a future workforce for Minnesota’s automotive service industry by raising awareness and recruiting people into technical college automotive education programs (collision and mechanical) and industry careers. MNCARS will help parents, influencers and students overcome misperceptions of the industry and attract the qualified employees the industry needs.

How You Can Get Involved

MNCARS’ efforts are made possible by sponsorships from dedicated people, organizations and businesses in the automotive industry. We are committed to work as a unified group to tackle our shortage of qualified employees and build a high-quality future workforce for Minnesota’s automotive service industry.
