Description
The Associate Degree Automotive Training Apprenticeship program combines on-the-job training with classroom instruction to prepare students for careers as automotive technicians. As the automotive industry advances with sophisticated technology and responds to the needs and demands of consumerism and legislation, employment opportunities will continue to increase for technicians who are highly skilled. Over four to eight semesters, the student will complete an associate degree and work in the industry. The program is demanding, so students must be willing to commit themselves to both work and study. Students will take 22 credit hours of General Studies Courses, plus either the Day or Evening program coursework. (Housed in the Applied Technologies Department)
