ABRA Auto Body & Glass Enrolling Students in Career Development Academy

By Business Wire News   


ABRA Auto Body & Glass, a leading national damaged vehicle repair company, announced it is now enrolling students into its state-of-the-art Career Development Academy. The Academy, located in Eagan, Minnesota, is set to open later this summer.

ABRA is launching the Career Development Academy in response to an industry wide shortage of auto body technicians. An aging population and a shift in career choices over past decades has left the industry challenged to find creative ways to attract new talent. ABRA’s Career Development Academy is one of them. There is no cost to students attending the Career Development Academy, one of many perks turning heads in the industry.

Prospective students can now apply for the ABRA Springboard™ Apprentice Program, the first of many planned offerings at ABRA’s Career Development Academy. Students will receive five-weeks of paid training, earn multiple I-CAR® certifications, and upon successful completion will be provided immediate employment in an ABRA repair center.

Chief People Officer at ABRA, David Kuhl, says there are a lot of misconceptions about a career as an auto body technician, something ABRA is on a mission to dispel. “Today’s vehicles are becoming more and more advanced, requiring a technical aptitude and specific repair procedures. ABRA Springboard students can look forward to an incredibly rewarding career in a stable industry, with significant earning potential.”

Interested students should contact the ABRA Career Development Academy at 763.585.6362. Students can also apply online at
