Program Details

Our program is nationally certified by the ASE Education Foundation (formerly known as NATEF). This organization certifies automobile technician training programs offered by high schools, post secondary trade schools, technical institutes, and community colleges. ASE certification signifies that the program meets uniform national standards for instructional facilities, equipment, staff, credentials, and curriculum. Our Automotive Technology program offers you superior training on today's increasingly advanced vehicles. With our small class sizes, you'll receive personalized attention and instruction.

Offered to both full and part-time students, our programs include a one-semester Automotive Service Attendant Certificate, a One-Year Automotive Technology Certificate, and a two-year career option which qualifies you for an Associate Degree in Automotive Technology and/or transfer to a four-year college. No matter which career option you choose, you'll be fully prepared to take the Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) test at the completion of your training.

It's the perfect option for someone who's already employed in the automotive field or someone looking to become an automotive technician. Our two-year career program offers you the opportunity to gain automotive repair training while taking general education courses -- an excellent choice if you're considering a career in automotive service.
