Automotive Technicians inspect, maintain, and repair mechanical, electrical, and hydraulic parts of automobiles, trucks, industrial equipment, and other fuel-powered vehicles. The Auto Technology program teaches students these skills through lab and classroom courses. The program teaches students high levels of technical understanding, current developments in the field such as electronic control systems and environmental issues, diagnostic capabilities, and proficiency with recommended service procedures. Students in this program will be actively engaged in hands-on learning and prepared for a career in the automotive industry.
Nothing is more important to a mechanic than their hand tools. Typically workers have their own tools, and the more experienced workers have spent thousands of dollars on them. Students will be encouraged to purchase their own tools as part of the training program, thus improving their employability after completion of the program.
Graduates will be prepared to seek employment in a variety of automotive positions, including alignment specialist, rebuild/overhaul specialist, automotive technician apprentice, driveability technician, front-end technician, maintenance technician, and transmission technician.
