In partnership with South Carolina Dealership members and Apprenticeship Carolina, SCADA launched the SC Auto Tech Development program September 2022. The program is designed to bridge the gap between Auto Tech candidates and their careers in the automotive industry. Providing scholarships, direct Dealership job placement and no-cost, comprehensive tool sets, we’ve placed 48 Auto Tech apprentices in careers to date. With the increase in participating Dealerships and program applications, we are on a trajectory to double enrollment for 2023-2024. Learn more at
