This one-year Automotive Mechanics Certificate Program is designed to provide students with concentrated skill training for immediate employment. However, all credits can also be applied toward an Associate’s degree.
Emphasis is on practical hands-on experience in all aspects of automotive mechanics, including engines, support systems, electrical systems, chassis, and power trains. Customer relations are also stressed. Modern electronic equipment is used in highly individualized laboratory projects. Advanced placement and credit for prior learning in school and on the job are possible. Students in this program are expected to provide their own safety footwear, tools kits, and other personal items appropriate for automotive laboratory classes.
