Automotive Technology Program

Automotive Technology Program


The Automotive Program is a NATEF certified
training program that covers all aspects
of the vehicle.
It teaches the students to repair the cars and the fundamentals of how they operate.
and what’s behind the repairs. We have a
pretty big
a variety of instructors. Many of them
are working full-time technicians
and they teach for us part-time in the evenings. So they’ll be working on cars all day long,
working at dealerships,
working independently and then they’ll come here
I like the program at CLC because
because the instructors have a lot of knowledge,
and they’re making me a very prepared technician.
They have been working in the field for many years.
So we’ve got a balance between people that are professional teachers,
and people that are professional mechanics that are teaching,
and between the two, we work together, we help each other become the best teachers we can be
so the students get the best experience they can get.
The experience has been excellent here.
It has far exceeded my best expectations, to be honest.
The teachers are my favorite part.
They just have so much knowledge and experience behind them, and it
really makes for a great learning experience.
You spend time in the classroom and you also have a chance to work in the lab.
The facility that we have is pretty state-of-the-art.
It is a new facility, this is our third year in it.
When we talk about something in the classroom
we can go right out into the shop,
and get the hands-on experience.
Really, that’s when the light-bulb goes on.
I really love that at the end of the day you can see right there what you’ve done
For me, it’s very rewarding. Just a very positive, exciting experience.
You don’t learn one thing today and use it the rest of your life,
you learn how to learn today and use that the rest of your life.
Right people here, right equipment. And if you really
you know, push yourself to learn, it’ll be an excellent experience.
The automotive industry is huge. There’s just so many opportunities.
It’s hard to even list them all.
Most of them wind up with a job before they finish,
which is one the strengths of the program. They are able to apply
what they learned in class, you know, tomorrow.
Literally, tomorrow.
Then come back and talk about what they did on the job
and learn more about that.
So it’s really a program thats got a lot of flexibility, and gives
the students a real good head-start when they do graduate.
