Kids to Love’s training initiative, KTECH, earns automotive award

MADISON – KTECH, the training initiative founded by Kids to Love, has been honored for excellence in the manufacturing industry.

The Alabama Automobile Manufacturers Association or AAMA named KTECH as the 2021 “Service Provider of the Year.” The recognition solidifies KTECH as a leader in the advanced manufacturing industry.

Kids to Love, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, operates KTECH.

The KTECH training received the award at the Southern Automotive Conference in Birmingham in October. The award recognizes companies that “exemplify workforce development excellence in the automotive manufacturing industry,” according to AAMA sources.

“KTECH is an industry leader in skills training,” Lee Marshall said. Marshall is Founder and CEO of Kids to Love. “We are meeting the need for skilled workers.”

“Companies hire our students because they are not only qualified but dependable workers. That’s the KTECH difference,” Marshall said.

AAMA is a premiere organization dedicated to furthering Alabama’s Automotive Manufacturing Industry. This association delves in positive outcomes to statewide issues, like workforce development and connections to suppliers, service providers and manufacturers.

“KTECH is privileged to work alongside AAMA to fill the gaps for skilled labor in our state,” Marshall said. “Since its inception in 2016, KTECH has awarded 236 certifications. Eight KTECH students have been offered jobs or continued their education. KTECH graduates are working in 21 companies.” (goktech.org)

The Alabama Community College System has licensed KTECH as a private school. Offering hands-on and interactive instruction, KTECH students can earn up to four certifications in the fields of Mechatronics, Robotics, Soldering and Solid Edge.

Kids to Love’s office address is 140 Castle Drive in Madison. For more information about Kids to Love, call 256-880-3455, email Lee@kidstolove.org or visit kidstolove.org or goktech.org.
