Automotive Technologies



Automotive Technologies is a challenging program dedicated to preparing students for today’s expanding careers in the auto/diesel industries. Because of the compatibilities of basic engine components and vehicle operation systems between auto, diesel, and marine engines, units covering basic operation and maintenance of such systems are integrated into a single instructional unit. These units include electrical, engine repair, engine performance, heating and air conditioning, steering and suspension, and brakes.  


The program is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and exceeds the requirements for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certification. The program has also been recognized as an Automotive Youth Educational Systems (AYES) school partner, is NATEF/AYES certified, and participates actively with local businesses to foster student apprenticeships. 


Upon successful completion of the program, students have a wide choice of career and educational options. Students can enter the workforce directly upon graduation, continue their education through apprenticeship programs, or enter one of many technical colleges.
