Central Piedmont to become official Hyundai training provider

Central Piedmont Community College will soon become an official Hyundai training provider as part of the Hyundai Performance Institute Technician Student Program. Central Piedmont will launch the curriculum that prepares students to work as Hyundai technicians in early 2024.

Students in Central Piedmont’s two-year associate-degree program in Automotive Systems Technology will be able to choose the Hyundai track that includes both express and certified technician pathways. Students who complete the program will be assigned to a Hyundai/Genesis dealership, where they will become fully certified Hyundai service technicians.

Central Piedmont’s Hyundai Performance Institute Technician Student Program will be based at the Levine Campus, Matthews. Central Piedmont is one of about 120 community colleges across the United States partnering with Hyundai to offer the specialized program. There are nine Hyundai/Genesis dealerships within the greater Charlotte area.
