Automotive Technology


The Automotive Technology program takes place in a “hands on” learning environment.
First year students will have the opportunity to receive a SP2 Safety Certificate and The Valvoline Motor Oil Basics Certificate. Students will remove and replace various steering and suspension components, brakes and exhausts systems, and will use MIG welding and Oxy fuel torches. They will also use a computerized wheel balancing machine and a four wheel alignment machine.

Second year students will use a variety of computerized scan tools to diagnose and repair drive train, emission, and electrical issues. During the second semester, students are encouraged to participate in a work study program while receiving high school and college credits for their time “on the job”.
