Yeah For Me!!

Yesterday, I was interviewed and accepted to Mercedes Benz Elite technician training program!

I'm just so excited I had to share.

Congrats Bro. Does that mean your staying local then? I know last time we talked you weren't sure where you were going wether local or on the coast.


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

That's Great Shane!

Now you need to celebrate by going out and buying the new CBR1000RR with the Repsol paint scheme.

Talking

Thanks guys,
yeah Chey, I am staying local for the 4 month training, at least for the training, after which I have to complete a 1yr "internship" at a Mercedes dealer. For that I still don't know if I'll be local or have to leave. After the 1 yr. I can choose to come back and work for them here, which of course I will.

Dirtbiker, They primarily train you on their automotive lines, but I do have diesel training as well

Texas Blonde, I know, it's one of the benefits of doing well at UTI.

Chicago Factory, I will definitely be looking for that Repsol bike

RSV, sure thing dude
