Hyundai Job Training

Hyundai Motor Group Metaplant America (HMGMA) and Coastal Pines Technical College signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) for a training partnership in July 2023.

This partnership with Hyundai will be an excellent opportunity for students to get a foot in the door in the Electric Vehicle sector. Those that complete the program will be preferred for employment interviews with HMGMA who are building an EV plant in Bryan County, Georgia.

Electric Vehicle Professional Technical Certificate of Credit

This certificate was designed at the request of Hyundai to prepare students for entry level employment in the electric vehicle production industry. Training emphasis will be placed on safe and effective automotive shop operations, automotive electrical principles, and operation and service of electric vehicles. Graduates will have the skill set to work in sub-assembly shops, building components. They could also work on the floor of production facilities to put the sub-assembly together to manufacture electric vehicles.

Coastal Pines plans to offer this training at its Baxley and Waycross campuses with plans to expand as needs are seen in the future. This program is planned to launch in January 2024.
