Navistar announced its first equipment donation to Canadian technical programs through the TECH EmPOWERment initiative. While the program has already donated numerous pieces of equipment to technical programs around the U.S., the fourth quarter of 2021 saw the first donation to technical colleges in Canada. The TECH EmPOWERment program supplies accredited technical schools with equipment, real-world advisory counsel and prospects for aspiring technicians.

“Ensuring technical students around North America have updated technologies to learn with is a priority, and we are very proud to have organized our first of what I hope will be many equipment donations to Canada,” said Ana Salcido, manager, Technician Recruitment, Navistar. “In the future, we hope to extend this program even more.”

To further aid technician education, dealers from around the U.S. have donated equipment to local colleges and technical programs through the TECH EmPOWERment initiative. Since 2016, nearly 60 donations have been made to technical programs throughout North America. The TECH EmPOWERment initiative was officially established in 2020 to provide more direction and organization for the donations.

“The students from these technical programs could very well end up working for one of our dealerships and knowing that we provided them with hands-on educational tools during their training is just as rewarding for us as it is for them,” said Richard Short, president and chief operating officer, Rush Truck Canada.
