The Automotive Technician program combines classroom study and practical hands-on application, to provide students with the essential skills needed to determine and make the appropriate repairs on today's vehicles.
The employment prospects for automotive technicians are excellent. Technicians may find employment at new car dealerships, independent repair shops, specialty car care chains as well as federal, state, and county maintenance shops. They may also start their own business.
Gainful employment programs are those “that prepare students for gainful employment in a recognized occupation.” Public institutions are required to report this information for all undergraduate and graduate programs that are Title IV eligible and that lead to certificates, diplomas, graduate certificates or specialist awards. Reporting is not required for undergraduate certificates and diplomas less than 16 credits and graduate certificates and specialist awards that are less than 8 credits. Degree programs at all levels are not considered to be gainful employment programs.
Students are required to purchase their own basic tool set.
