Automotive Technology is a two-year program, presented in four blocks of instruction. An ASE Certified Technician teaches the courses. Students may enroll at the beginning of any semester, with sophomores and juniors having the option of returning the following semesters to complete the course. This program introduces the student to basic automotive diagnosis and repair. Safety and professionalism are taught as the foundation of employability.
Upon successful completion of this program, the student will have a working knowledge of diagnosing and repairing minor automotive problems. If enrolled for concurrent credit, the student may be eligible for a Certificate of Proficiency as a Tire Center Operator.
Students are encouraged to take the ASE Automotive Technician Certification tests. This training should provide the student with entry-level job skills. Students are encouraged to further their training by enrolling in a post-secondary Automotive Technology program upon completion.
This program promotes leadership development, community involvement, and personal growth through SkillsUSA.
The Automotive Technology program is certified by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation/National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (NATEF/ASE).
