Jason Goldsmith

I am a former Brattleboro Union High School graduate from the class of 1990. In 1996, I successfully completed the automotive technology course at Baran Institute of Technology, now known as Lincoln Tech. With over fifteen years of experience as a factory-trained Volkswagen technician, I have worked at VW dealerships in Western Massachusetts and played a key role in the opening of the VW dealership in Keene in the fall of 2000.

My background also includes valuable experience in independent auto repair shops, and I have successfully operated my own business from home over the years. In addition to my professional pursuits, I enjoy engaging in recreational activities. In the winter, I indulge in snowboarding and snowshoeing, while the summer months find me kayaking and bike riding with my wife and daughter.

I am enthusiastic about the prospect of teaching and sharing my wealth of experiences with the students who enroll in my class. Whether pursued for general knowledge or as a career path, automotive is a highly rewarding trade to learn. I look forward to contributing to the growth and development of the students in my class.
