Automotive Technology


Automotive Technology is an ASE certified Master Automotive Service Technician Program by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation. All instruction coincides with the nine instructional areas as recognized by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence. Training in each area includes classroom instruction and practice on simulated vehicle systems before receiving hands-on experience diagnosing and repairing “live” vehicles. Upon completion of an instructional area, students will be able to perform procedures expected of an automotive technician employed in the Automotive Field. Once an instructional area is mastered, students advance to the next area until all areas are complete. Certificate level exit points are provided for those students who attain enough knowledge and skill to gain employment before completing all eight areas. During training students prepare to take the ASE certification exams.
