With the donation, the Automotive Technology program at Collin College Technical Campus can expand its hands-on training to include diagnostic work.

Repairify recently donated more than $180,000 in diagnostic repair tools to the Automotive Technology program at Collin College Technical Campus in Allen, Texas, according to a press release.

With the program providing students with training and certifications in automotive repair, receiving this donation will help the program expand to offering hands-on training with diagnostic equipment. 

In addition, any tools leftover from the donation will be distributed from Collin College to high school automotive programs throughout the state.

According to Repairify Vice President of Training and Organizational Development Chris Chesney, several of the company’s current employees are alumni of the school, having made it a good fit for the donation.

“I am a big believer in sharing the wealth, and with these donations, we’ll be able to make an impact not only on our students, but also throughout the DFW metro area and beyond,” told Elias Alba, director of automotive and collision technology at Collin College. “We are thankful to Repairify for their support of our program and the automotive industry at large.”
