Installer Institute Program Now Eligible for Federal Student Loans, Pell Grants


Another program from Metra Electronics’ Installer Institute for car audio education is eligible for Title IV funding. The 26-week Comprehensive Installations Program now offers Federal Student Loans and Pell Grants for those who qualify.

The program’s eligibility allows students to submit a free application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) with the Installer Institute’s federal code, 042742, to determine eligibility for federal financial aid.

“We’re thrilled to receive financial aid for our 26-week program, as it will allow students with financial needs to receive benefits that will help cover a great portion of their tuition,” said Monica Anderson, director of the Installer Institute. “Overall, federal financial aid makes our training programs more accessible to students of all backgrounds who are eager to train for a career in mobile, marine and home electronics. Installer Institute is a legitimate training facility where we focus on real hands-on training and the constant growth of our Industry.”

Installer Institute is a recognized, approved and licensed training facility by the Department of Education, Veterans Affairs, Vocational Rehabilitation and accredited by ACCET.

Private financing is also available, according to Metra Electronics. Job placement assistance and employee search services are available.

All programs consist of instructional hours in the classroom, workshops and hands-on training in the install bay and fabrication shop. The programs also offer workshops to improve student job skills and education in the process of owning their own business as an installation professional. Students learn the best practices related to the industry and will be prepared to take several industry certification examinations, according to Metra Electronics.

Additional topics covered in these programs are subwoofer enclosure design, vehicle acoustics, integrating with OEM systems, practical installations, security and remote start, leather interior installations, tint, home audio and structured wiring, home automation and control, advanced interior panel design, custom fabrication, fiberglass enclosure design and construction, fabricating with advanced composites, painting and welding.

Accommodations near the campus in Daytona Beach, Florida, are included with tuition, and prospective students are encouraged to speak with an admissions advisor to learn more.

Continuing Education classes, six-days long, are also available.

Tuition discounts may be offered to Metra Electronics dealers.
