The Automotive Technology program is designed around the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF) standards and our students gain exposure to four of the eight automotive specialty areas. The instruction that our students receive is done through classroom and hands-on lab activities.
Each student in the Automotive Technology program will complete a teardown and reassembly on discarded drum brakes, a complete engine, and various other automotive components. Students will also learn, through hands-on activities, how to use the latest diagnostic equipment for on-board computers along with tire mounting/balancing and alignment equipment.
We have students who go straight into the job market and work as entry-level technicians in private repair shops or automotive dealerships. Other students choose to enter into post-secondary automotive training.
