Metra Electronics’ Installer Institute is now eligible for Title IV funding for the 12-week Mobile Electronics Program. This means students may submit a free application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) with the Installer Institute’s federal code (042742) to determine eligibility for federal financial aid. Student financial aid may include Stafford Loans and Pell Grants, which are applied to tuition costs for the 400-hour Mobile Electronics program at the Installer Institute, according to the company.
“We’re thrilled to receive Title IV funding for this 12-week program, as it will allow students with financial needs to receive benefits that will help cover or reduce their tuition. This makes our training program more accessible to students of all backgrounds who are eager to train for a career in mobile electronics,” said Monica Anderson, director of the Installer Institute.
The school is already approved for VA education benefits for veterans and is accredited by ACCET.
The Mobile Electronics program consists of instructional hours in the classroom, workshop and install bay. This course covers everything in the basic and advanced installation courses, according to Metra Electronics. Students will learn best practices related to the auto sound and security industry and will be prepared to take the Mobile Electronics Certification Program (MECP) and Mobile Electronics Schools Association (MESA) examinations.
Additional topics covered include electrical training, enclosure design and construction, installing aftermarket electronics, speakers and radios, advanced mobile security and navigation, complex installations, leather interior installation, advanced fabrication, interior panel design and construction and custom painting and metal work. Accommodations near the campus are included with tuition, according to the company.
