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 two 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 requirements. Credit waived is non-transferable.
