Automotive Technology gives students the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of auto repair, including alignments, brakes, oil changes, troubleshooting, computerized diagnostics techniques and much more.
Students learn largely through hands-on experiences while working on customer vehicles in the on-site auto repair shop. The shop is open to the public.
At the completion of the two-year program, students are eligible to take the test to become certified in maintenance and light repair through the NATEF certification board. Students are eligible to receive college credit for various sections at the end of the two-year program.
Students who have graduated from the program have gone on to become automotive technicians, diagnostic technicians, parts department managers, service managers and service writers.
The program has partnerships with area businesses and is often able to get students employment even before graduation.
