Auto Services

Description

Auto Services is an auto maintenance program designed for students with an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) that emphasizes hands-on learning. Students work individually and in teams to learn the needed skills. Students who achieve the needed skill levels can qualify for the half-day Advanced Placement program during their senior year.

Students will learn to disassemble complete cars, remove engines, transmissions, suspensions, and glass and body panels. Students are introduced to general service items such as lube maintenance, tire service, basic brake repair (both disc and drum), and basic hydraulics. Students will also learn coolant and transmission fluid maintenance. In addition, the Auto Service program introduces students to basic welding and cutting using MIG, plasma, and oxy-acetylene. As a part of this training, each student completes a welding project.

After completing the Auto Services program, students can go on to become detailers in new and used car dealerships or body shops. Some become dismantlers for auto recyclers or parts companies. Others choose to become general service technicians in tire stores, repair shops, and quick-lube centers.
