Meet Owen, our ITAC Apprentice!
Independent Technicians Automotive Committee (iTAC)
ITAC is a committee comprised of auto shops all over the region which come together to offer apprenticeships to young adults! iTAC is an industry-driven apprenticeship program, founded on the belief that mastery occurs on the job. Through apprenticeship all people have the opportunity to earn competitive wages, find meaningful and fulfilling work, and pursue lifelong learning.
After successful completion of either of these programs, apprentices will receive a certificate of completion from the State of Washington.
This year’s B&B Auto Apprentice: Owen!
We are so happy to have Owen with us this year!
Owen joined B&B in June of 2019 after finishing his education at West Sound Tech. His Dad, Jeremiah, is a Master tech here. In the time Owen has been with us he has learned a lot about vehicle repair; from oil changes to diesel repair. He has taken many online classes and attended the annual ATE training. Owen is eager to learn anything we throw at him. His passion is for the outdoors and he loves to fish and hunt; something he learned from his Dad. He also loves 4-wheeling with his buddies.
