The Automotive Service Technology program is designed for students who want to become technicians in general automotive repair. Jobs that are available include automotive technicians at dealerships, independent garages, automotive specialty shops, and parts-related businesses. The pay rate may be figured on a commission basis which promotes speed and dependability. Employment of service technicians is expected to increase due to service requirements and complexity of the automobile. Upon completion, the student may transfer to selected senior institutions to complete a four-year degree and be eligible as a manufacturer’s service representative, an automotive instructor, and other associated automotive management positions. The student must provide an approved tool set, and safety glasses. These courses meet NATEF (National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation) standards.
