Honda PACT
My passion for cars
started when I was young.
I started out holding
the light for my dad.
Hold the light.
Hold the light still, son.
And you know…
helping him with that.
Eventually,
What does that do?

What does that do?
“Hey, what does that do?”
And it just sparked
curiosity in me.
I love to be working.
I… all my life I
didn’t want to grow up
and be in a profession where
I was behind desk all day.
I wanted to do
something with my hands.
I wanted to keep moving.
I can’t stand to
not do anything.
And this was just awesome.
I was looking to change jobs
and I always enjoyed
working on vehicles
so I ended up calling
O-Triple-C and they got me
in touch with Mr. Walker.
I ended up sending him an e-mail
and we met on a Wednesday
and the next day
I was enrolled.
My boss there at Eskridge Honda,
he was pushing for some students
to go into the PACT program
and I thought it would
be a good opportunity
to further my education
in automotive.
Most of my day is really
just sitting here learning
and then applying
it in the afternoon
which is great because
all day just sitting down
kind of of gets… boring.
The activities or the
modules that they have us do
kind of brings it back.
Keeps me engaged so I don’t
kind of start drifting.
It is a chance to
further your education
and everyone wants that.
If you want to further
your education,
you definitely want to learn
the proper way to do things.
To be… just
expand your skill set,
this is definitely
a good program.
Two years, you get your
Associate’s Degree.
You can easily
become ASC certified
after taking your test.
I think they were telling us
you’re 80% done with
your Honda a training
and so only like a week or
two of modules are left.
And so, I want to
be a Master Tech.
That is my end goal at the
end of this is to become one
so that I can
provide better.
Because I’ve got a house.
I’ve got… and right now,
where I was at beforehand I
could make it with roommates
but I want to be on my own.
I want to be independent.
And that increased pay
that comes with my skills
will help me do that.
