Automotive Technology

The Automotive Technology Program is accredited by the National Automotive Technician Education Foundation (NATEF) and Master Certified in eight ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) areas. Program students receive training enriched in current technology and fundamental hands-on skills for both entry-level positions and for accelerated advancement in the automotive career field. The Transportation Service Technology Department may waive college credit requirements for students attaining industry skill standards. The criteria for waiving a course will be based on current Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certification in a specific area, as well as, having three recent years of employer verifiable work experience in that specific area. The waiver must be approved by the Automotive Department. Credit will be limited to a total of 16 semester hours and will be included in the 32 semester hour limit for non-traditional methods. The waiver will not be posted on the transcript until the student has satisfied college resident requirement. Credit waived is non-transferable. The ACE Guide will be utilized in establishing equivalencies. All documentation must be submitted by the requesting student. Students entering the Automotive Technology program should have:

  1. Finger and manual dexterity necessary to work mechanical and electrical systems.
  2. Color discrimination necessary to differentiate wire and resistance color codes.
  3. Near visual acuity and depth perception needed when working with small parts.
  4. Hearing capability necessary to discover, analyze, and correct irregular vehicle noises.
  5. Ability to climb, balance, stoop, kneel, and to lift heavy loads such as a tool box.

Diesel Technology

A degree plan will be established for each student in the program during the first semester of the first year of enrollment. Selection will include the necessary Arts and Science general education, Diesel Technology and other related technical courses as outlined in the College Catalog. The first six diesel courses are core courses and are required to be taken by all students in the program. Students entering the Diesel Technology programs should have:

  1. Finger and manual dexterity necessary to work mechanical and electrical systems.
  2. Color discrimination necessary to differentiate wire and resistance color codes.
  3. Near visual acuity and depth perception needed when working with small parts.
  4. Hearing capability necessary to discover, analyze, and correct irregular vehicle noises.
  5. Ability to climb, balance, stoop, kneel, and to lift heavy loads such as a tool box.

The above limitations may be waived if the student is equipped with mechanical and/or electrical devices and has obtained approval from the chairperson of Transportation Service Technologies Department and the Dean of Applied Science and Technology. The Diesel Technology Program may award college credit requirements for students with industry skill standards. The criteria for awarding will be based on passing the Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) test in the specific area of the course to be awarded as well as having five years of employer verifiable work experience in that specific area.

The Diesel Program Credit Committee must approve the credit.

Automotive Body Repairer
(Collision Technology)

The Auto Collision Program is introducing a new line of degrees and certificates of completion to better serve the St. Philip’s College auto collision students as well as the auto collision industry. The new degree programs were the results of feedback provided by the community leaders in the auto collision repair industry and approved by the Auto collision advisory committee for implementation as of fall 2002. The goal is to provide the industry with a higher skill-trained technician that is specialized or can apply the skills and knowledge learned in the program to all areas of the collision/refinishing industry.

The program is currently instructed to the standards of the newest I-CAR Enhanced Delivery training software. This will allow students to receive the latest and most up-to-date training in current technology using the latest equipment and standards. This training program was developed and accepted by both insurance companies and the collision repair industry nationally. Our training programs give students the opportunity to earn I-CAR credits and certifications upon successful completion.

Physical/Health Attributes:

  1. Finger and manual dexterity
  2. Ability to Climb, balance, stoop, kneel, and lift heavy loads
  3. Color distinction required
  4. Near-visual acuity and depth perception
