The Automotive Technology curriculum follows the guidelines established by the ASE Education Foundation. Curriculum follows the safety requirements, areas of focus, time frames and recognized task list designed by ASE.

The Automotive Technology program gives students the foundation to jumpstart their career with some of the largest dealership service centers or independent repair facilities across the country. Your time in this program will consists of a hands-on approach to learning in our sophisticated and newly constructed automotive shop. Coursework includes web based training for Ford, Subaru, and FCA (Fiat/Chrysler America). Individuals may “test out” of any A series classes by passing the corresponding ASE Professional Level exam PRIOR to enrolling in a class.

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 Automobile Service Technician (AST). You will also have the opportunity to begin Manufacturer Specific Web Based Factory Training by one or more of our industry sponsors.
