The Automotive Technology curriculum follows the guidelines established by the National Automotive Technician Education Foundation (NATEF) and the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) now called the ASE Education Foundation. The curriculum follows the safety requirements, areas of focus, time frames and recognized task list designed by the above two agencies. This is our Base Curriculum. In addition, we also offer web based training for Ford, Subaru, and FCA (Fiat/Chrysler America) which is integrated into our courses. This gives students the option to jumpstart their careers into any dealership service center across the nation for these companies, or work for any independently owned repair facility. Upon completion of our program and working a year in the industry, you will have the opportunity to pass all the ASE certification tests to become an ASE Master Technician, plus get a great start on some Manufacturer Specific Web Based Factory Training by one or more of our industry sponsors.
