Auto service training has long history in area

on June 19, 2017 9:49 AM

Auto repair training has made many leaps and bounds over the decades.

More than 50 years before Wyoming Technical Institute opened its cutting-edge automotive training facility at the Corporate Campus Industrial park in Burrell Township, there was a well-known training program in service near downtown Blairsville.

Vale Tech, an automotive repair school, operated for 65 years in Blairsville and sold its facilities in 2001 to WyoTech.

The original Vale Tech shop is shown here on May 16, 1950. (Gazette file photo)
