Program Mission: Provide the opportunity for students to acquire the skills necessary for entrylevel employment in the automotive service industry.
Credentials: All Automotive Service instructors are Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) Certified Master Automobile Technicians and regularly receive advanced training from vehicle manufacturers and aftermarket suppliers. The Automotive Service department was evaluated by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF) and has been an ASE Certified Automotive Training Program since 1998.
After Graduation: An individual completing this program will find employment opportunities available in a variety of settings. Graduates find entry level positions in dealerships, independent repair facilities and fleet services. With additional training and experience, many technicians become shop foreman, service advisor, service manager or open their own business.
Preparation: Individuals interested in a career in automotive service should be mechanically inclined, have good reading and math skills, and enjoy working on cars and trucks. High school training in automotive service is an advantage, as is any training in electronics and computer operation. But the most important factor may be your desire to succeed in this highly skilled profession.
The goal of the program is to provide intensive training and experience in the diagnosis, repair and service of contemporary vehicles.
