Shane grew up working on cars with his Dad, so Lincoln Tech was an obvious choice. And while he jokes that he thought he knew cars, but found out he knew “next to nothing.” Thanks to support from his instructors, Shane came out of the Automotive program with a 4.0 GPA, perfect attendance, and a President’s Award. After landing a job at Mercedes-Benz, he’s still celebrating – “If you want to be with the best, you have to be the best, and that’s what Lincoln Tech taught me.”


“Lincoln Tech definitely gives you the most hands-on, real-time training. The instructors are all out in the field, experienced. That relays back into your profession and to what you should be doing.”
