Volkswagen is custom prepping students to come work for them..
12 students have just completed the three year Volkswagen Academy program.
Their the first graduating class and already have jobs lined up for them.
"I am planning on staying at Volkswagen. I'm planning on going back to school to get my masters in business," said Saul Flores.
It's a program manager Ilker Subasi completed 14 years ago in Germany.
"I worked in the same bench over here, filing a medal sheet with passion and it's a long breeze but in the long run it's a return of investments of the time" Subasi said.
He said it's designed to fill the skills gap that so often leaves them with jobs that few can fill.
"We wanna close this gap with our training model and after three years we are creating our own technicians and specialists for our needs in the plant," said Subasi.
Students come out of it with certifications not available anywhere else in the US and a start to a great career path.
