Registered Apprenticeship Automotive Technician Training Program
Get paid while you learn! This 18-month training program was designed as an option for enrolled Automotive Service Technology students. Bridging the gap between higher-ed and full-time employment, this program takes students out into the field to train and apply what they learn in our state-of-the-art classrooms. Students will shadow working auto mechanics to experience day-to-day operations at an auto mechanic shop and gain hands-on experience while earning an associate degree. In addition to payment for the apprenticeship work, we have financial aid opportunities available to make this full-time program feasible for all our students. Students in this program will also have access to a designated support specialist who can help them overcome roadblocks and connect with resources that will help them stay on the track toward success.
