The Automotive Technology program prepares students for successful careers as service technicians in the rapidly growing automotive repair industry. By providing students with exposure and hands-on experience on a variety of domestic and import vehicles, this broad-based curriculum prepares graduates for a wide range of job opportunities in new car dealerships, independent repair shops, or fleet repair facilities.

Classes are designed for beginners or those with some experience. Students may earn an associate degree, complete a number of certificates, or take individual courses to meet their educational and career goals. The Associate Degree program in Automotive Technology provides instruction in all aspects of the automobile, including the latest electronic systems. Students master the skills needed to diagnose and repair automobiles while working in the college’s well-equipped auto lab. The experienced faculty work closely with students to prepare them for a career and to become certified A.S.E. (National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence) Master Automotive Technicians.

The program is accredited through NATEF. To receive this certification, the program is evaluated against industry standards of quality every five years by a team of external evaluators. The certification process ensures that the curriculum includes all of the appropriate competencies needed to properly prepare entry-level technicians and is delivered by A.S.E. certified faculty on current technology equipment and vehicles. All automotive faculty are A.S.E. Master Certified technicians with extensive industry repair experience.
