The certificate of achievement programs in Automotive Technology teach the various systems found on today’s vehicles, including electrical, fuel, ignition, power, and drive train. These programs are designed to be completed individually or applied to the associate degree in Automotive Technology. Because the Certificate of Achievement transfers into the two-year degree program, it is highly recommended that students complete certificate requirements prior to degree requirements. The related courses provide a broad background qualifying the individual for employment in numerous fields allied to the automobile industry.
Laboratory classes provide students with actual experience to strengthen their understanding of the theory learned in classroom study. The laboratories are equipped with some of the latest equipment being used to service modern automobiles. Included in laboratories are representative types of engines, chassis, transmissions, rear axles, and considerable testing equipment being used today.
