Description

UACCM’s Automotive Service Technology program covers the operation, maintenance, and repair of the modern vehicle. Students will learn to troubleshoot issues accurately using high-tech diagnostic equipment on a diverse fleet of vehicles. Students will receive classroom instruction that complements the hands-on training assignments that are completed in the shop. Reading, basic math, and computer skills are essential to success since auto repair requires such precision. Major tools needed for this program are provided. Throughout the program, students have the ability to earn industry-recognized certifications from ASE, Ford, and others.


Formal training in the automotive service and repair field has become more important due to the multitude of advances in this evolving technology and changes in automotive system communication structures, an increasing number of electronic components, and building materials used in late model automobiles.
