What is PACT Training?
The WSU Automotive Department has partnered with American Honda Motor Sales, U.S.A. to allow students in our B.S. Degree programs to receive training from Honda's Professional Automotive Career Training (PACT) Program and Honda's Fixed Operations Training.
The PACT curriculum includes Honda Alternate Fueled Vehicle training, Hybrid-Electric Vehicle training and other selected advanced technical topics.
The Fixed Operations Training curriculum includes the Honda Philosophy, Dealership Service Management, Parts Management, Service Advisor, and Sales training.
This training agreement is a benefit to all of our upper division students. Additionally, this training will better prepare our graduates for a career with a Honda dealership or a corporate position with American Honda Motor Sales, U.S.A.
