Due to rapid advances in technology, the service and repair of cars and trucks has evolved into a more complex and challenging career. Today's automotive technician must have advanced skills and training that were not previously required for a successful career in this field.
The Automotive Service Technician technical certificate will prepare the student for entry into the automotive repair industry. The program consists of the first 20 credit hours of the Automotive Service Management Technology (A236) (A.A.S.) degree program and four credits of professional electives.
A minimum grade of "C" or better is required in all professional coursework.
Students are required to have a high school diploma or GED®. Entrance into the program requires students to submit an application to the Program Manager's Office that includes the results of appropriate placement test (PERT for A.A.S. or TABE for PSAV) or proof of exemption claimed on SB1720 student questionnaire.
Notice to prospective students: A poor driving record, certain felony convictions, or not having a regular unrestricted driver's license will adversely affect your employment opportunities as an Automotive Technician. Students are strongly encouraged to explore employment eligibility requirements for any career field before choosing and starting a program of study.
