Military Technician Education Network

The Military Technician Education Network (M-TEN) is an all-new Registered Apprenticeship program developed by Toyota Motor North America in partnership with Hiring Our Heroes and the Department of Labor. M-TEN allows transitioning active duty service members to participate in an intensive 12-week automotive technician training program and earn credits toward becoming a certified technician.


The M-TEN begins with a 12-week training program to build a strong foundation for your technical education, followed by an “earn while you learn” 1,520-hour apprenticeship at a participating Toyota or Lexus dealer.

All military skillsets are welcome to apply for the program; all that is required is a love of vehicles and a mechanical aptitude!

Program Timeline

The inaugural M-TEN class launched on February 11, 2019. The second 2019 class will begin on June 10 and end on September 6. Classes will be held at Toyota Motor North America in Plano, Texas.
