Automotive Technology & Servicing  

You'll have two options in this program; auto technician or auto servicing. The auto technician student will learn theory, science, math/geometry, chemistry and physics as applied to the modern automobile, as well as participate in applied shop activities. The auto service student will spend more time in the shop, learning mechanical and cosmetic maintenance, management procedures, and the operation of the service and salvagebusiness. Both options provide the opportunity for instruction in the eight ASE certification areas, but content will vary in depth. The choice will depend upon your future goals and ability. The instructors will help you decide which option is best for you!
