Automotive Program Details


Program Details & Tool Bonus Information
Why the Automotive Industry?

The number of drivers and cars on the road continues to increase with each year. Therefore, the demand for qualified Automotive Service Technicians continues to grow! With some employers reporting difficulty finding workers with the right skills and education, job opportunities for qualified applicants should be very good, whether they obtained their knowledge through education or experience. Of these workers, those who have completed formal postsecondary training programs or achieved ASE certification should enjoy the best job prospects.1

"The automotive program instilled me with a better confidence in diagnosing and servicing vehicles, which has been a hobby of mine. It's overall an excellent program. Everything they teach you applies to what you will be doing real time. I am happy to begin working at a dealership, doing something I love."

"Learning electrical basics at MTTI gave me confidence to learn electrical on luxury cars. At Herb Chambers Lexus, you deal with many electrical problems. Lexus vehicles have all kinds of cool sensors, like ‘lane assist’ and ‘parking assist’. You have to be able to read the wiring diagrams to understand them. But I don’t feel blindsided when the Foremen are helping me with electrical issues—I have been prepared for that."
