Automotive Technology

It's not your dad's garage anymore.

Like all technology, automotive systems are getting more and more sophisticated. Today, technicians need to know computer tools and hand tools. To get the best jobs, you must learn how to use the newest equipment.

Instruction in systems such as engines, fuel, onboard computers, transmissions, steering, suspension, and brakes is the basis for this program.

The Automotive Technician option provides knowledge of the various systems used to develop skills in troubleshooting, performing preventative maintenance, servicing and repairing automobiles. The program prepares graduates for entry-level service technician jobs in the auto repair industry. The student may be provided a work-study experience alternating between periods of work on-site and work in a classroom-laboratory setting.

The Parts/Service Writer option provides knowledge of the various systems and components and how they relate. This knowledge enables the student to more accurately interpret their customers' automotive complaints, identify and sell automotive parts, and provide efficient customer service within the automotive service and repair industry.

Students may take the ASE exams in these areas when they have completed the requirements for these tests.
