Aug. 24, 2020—Volvo Car USA and its retail partners announced the Volvo Technician Tool Program.

According to a press release, this new program can help reduce more than $20,000 in student debt and eliminates the need for new auto service technicians to invest in their own pricey tools. Historically, such tools have been a mandate to secure employment with a new car retailer.

In addition to paying for an education and certification, auto service technicians are also expected to have their own tools in order to secure employment with a name-brand new car retailer, with a professional toolset and tool box costing up to tens of thousands of dollars.

Volvo Car USA is providing technicians with free and permanent access to a 72-piece set from Wurth Tools with hand and cordless tools to perform more than 80 percent of the jobs they will encounter at a certified Volvo Car Service Center.

Volvo Car USA announced the program to retailers on June 24.
