Preparing Tomorrows Professional Technicians Today
 
 
Our goal is to prepare for post-secondary education, an entry level position in careers related to the automotive industry, or become an educated consumer and vehicle owner. The development of knowledge thru theory studies and applied academics as related to and used in conjunction with hands on repair and service of automotive systems and mechanical repairs.
 
Our coursework is designed and implemented so that the entry level class feeds into the the next in a coherent sequence, building our knowledge and experience progressively. This model has proven to lead to student success in our program.
 
Students learn safety, tool identification and proper use, safety, shop tools and equipment, safety, career opportunities, safety, business ethics, safety, shop management, safety, vehicle maintenance and light repair, and safety. Safety is an extremely important part of our instruction. The ability to recognize a hazard and to then plan how to eliminate or minimize exposure to that condition is a skill that will be beneficial forever.
 
 3rd and 4th year students will be tested and if successful will receive student certification from ASE , the nationally recognized automotive professional technicians certification organization.
