NAFTC National Training Center Profile

Today, more than ever, the highly skilled automotive technician has an increasingly important role in the efficient operation of our society.

Students can apply for and take their NYS Inspection test during their freshman year. All automotive students have the opportunity to take their area’s ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) exams (we are a testing site) and the ADS (Association of Diesel Specialists) TechCert test.

The automotive service technician program is master certified by the NATEF (National Automotive Training Educational Foundation); the autobody repair program is ICAR (Inter-Industry Conference on Automotive Collision Repair) certified; and the heavy equipment: truck & diesel technician program is ADS affiliated.

NATEF is a national industry-wide organization whose 40-member board of directors represents all aspects of the automotive industry. Representation by such a diverse group of individuals adds to the credibility of the certifications to assure that programs meet stringent national standards.
