Junior and Senior year students will receive hands on training and theory of brakes, front end repair and alignment, engine repair and performance, scan tool operation, starting and charging systems, tire changing and balancing, cooling system repair, and basic electrical systems.
Most of the hands on training is done on live customer vehicles. All basic maintenance services are covered. We perform auto repair jobs on staff and community vehicles that students can successfully complete with assistance from the instructor.
Over the next 10 years there will be a need for 110,000 new auto technicians. The average wage is $16.24 to $21.56 per hour. This program provides entry level skills for students to find employment in the auto repair industry, an opportunity to earn free college credits and the base knowledge need to prepare them for the Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certification. To apply for your ASE certification students need to complete 2 years of field experience or 1 year in the field with a technical college certification.
