The MTECH Automotive courses prepare students to take the ASE competency tests and certification exams which include G1, and A1-A8. By passing the A1-A8 certifications, a student can qualify for ASE Master Technician. ASE certifications are the industry standard, and required by many car dealerships as well as independent repair shops across the country.
Automotive service technicians and mechanics, often called service technicians or service techs, inspect, maintain, and repair cars and light trucks. Service technicians work on traditional mechanical components, such as engines, transmissions, belts, and hoses. However, they must also be familiar with a growing number of electronic systems. Braking, transmission, and steering systems, for example, are controlled primarily by computers and electronic components. Maintenance and Light Repair gives students a solid foundation in a variety of areas within the automotive industry including:
Shop and Personal Safety
Automatic Transmission and Transaxle
Manual Drive Train and Axles
Suspension and Steering Systems
Heating and Air Conditioning
Customer Service and Professionalism
Certificates and Licensures
