As of January 2023, the Pohanka Automotive Training Center has officially been recognized by the state of Maryland as an Apprenticeship and Youth Apprenticeship Program.

An apprentice is sponsored by an employer or association and is paid according to a progressive pay scale. As a youth apprenticeship, students in their junior and senior years of high school are able to finish their schooling and earn up to four credits at the Pohanka Training Center.
While learning, both in the classroom and hands-on, at the Pohanka Automotive Training Center, students are placed part-time in one of Pohanka’s 10 service departments under an experienced mentor. The Training Center accepts students of all ages with a minimum age of 16. Whether you just graduated high school or are looking to change paths later in life, the Pohanka Automotive Training Center can offer you a fresh start on a rewarding new career.
