A 12-week Career Skills program that trains U.S. soldiers to become General Motors automotive technicians. Developed from a partnership between GM, VPS and the US Army, Shifting Gears helps to meet the needs of GM to fill open positions at dealerships nationwide with qualified technicians. The program also helps meet the US Army’s need to help soldiers transition to civilian life after completing their service commitment.

CUSTOMER TESTIMONIALS

“The international ‘Train the Trainer’ event, which took place in Turkey this year represents a major milestone within that strategy, ensuring the continuing success of our approach to dealer network development. VPS supported us with its broad expertise, professionalism and automotive training competence in the development of a blended learning solution that was simple, creative and pragmatic.”

“Having the right experience, VPS trainers demonstrate commitment, show enthusiasm, and tailor the learning intervention to the learners' needs. These are key ingredients in making our dealer network development successful.“

“(We) have a long history and cooperation with VPS as our training partner in Norway. We are using their services for both technical, and non-technical training of the staff in our 60 outlets. The feedback from the participants (our clients) is very positive and we can recommend VPS as a professional and reliable partner for training.”

“A major differentiator (of VPS) is its model of partnering with customers, as opposed to working on short, transactional projects. Due to (their) solid customer relationship management and operational excellence, (they) have retained a 98% contract renewal.”

“We decided to use VPS’ Live 360 Virtual Training (VCT) capability for introducing (our) new model to our retail network. The format was a nice surprise to participants ̶ a rich training experience, offering great interactivity in an engaging way, and no expensive travel. This is a truly effective delivery format.“

“As a soldier going through my second transition to civilian life, the ‘Shifting Gears’ program provides me with a unique opportunity. After receiving my certification as a GM technician, I’m looking forward to benefiting from a civilian career that enables me to build on the knowledge that I acquired as an Army helicopter mechanic to provide for my family, regardless of where we decide to live.”
