The Automotive Technology program is designed to train and prepare the serious student for a career in the auto industry. Everyone will train in different ASE areas including Brakes, Steering & Suspension, Electrical and Engine Performance. Students will learn to develop a diagnostic strategy, verify customer complaints, find problem and cause, and properly make corrections related to these repairs. Most lessons are taught in the form of lecture, demonstration and most importantly “hands-on” work in an environment that simulates, as accurately as possible, the conditions and requirements of the commercial automotive repair shop. Students are encouraged to take the ASE Certification Exams offered nationwide throughout the year. The Automotive Department at UCVTS is a NATEF and ASE Certified Program.
