In April 2019, New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo announced the formation of the Excelsior Automotive Technician Task Force to address the severe shortage of auto technicians and provide quality career opportunities for New Yorkers. This will be achieved by implementing the most advanced, manufacturer-specific training possible, ensuring more New Yorkers have the skills and education to qualify for the thousands of unfilled jobs in the industry.
