Automotive Technology Training Program

The automotive technology training program is broken up into five mini-achievement categories of study. This step by step, win/win approach empowers students to either focus their interest in a specialty area or attain success through the complete mastery of all systems.

At the successful completion of each course a certificate is given and at the completion of each specialized series a State of California recognized certificate can be applied for.
