Happy Holidays from all of us at Get In Her Lane!  Episode #10 is the final episode of Season 1 and 2022.

Kathleen, Shannon, and Jamie tackle the dealership technician shortage, an industry-wide problem, and the fact that only 1.3% of technicians are female.  They speak with Debbie and Lisa from Rudy Luther Toyota.

As one of the GMs in the Luther organization, Debbie talks about their corporate training center and program for training techs for all of their dealership brands. This program includes a weekly stipend, free tuition, up to a $4,000 tool scholarship, and job placement. There is currently a waiting list to get in!

While not every dealership can offer this size and scale of training, we discuss what can be done at a smaller level.

Lisa tells us what it is like to be a female technician at Rudy Luther Toyota, and we can learn some great things from her experience and how much culture matters. 

We mention Patrice Banks, owner, and creator of Girls Auto Clinic, in our discussion. Here is a link to her website:
