During this program, you’ll learn about the fundamentals of automotive theory as well as gain practical skills for maintenance, repair, and servicing automobiles. This training program will take you through the necessary steps required for diagnosing and servicing various types of automobile systems such as electronic automatic transmissions and hybrid vehicles. After successfully completing this course, you’ll be able to: • Adopt the role of an automotive technician with all the essential workplace skills • Recognize the type and functions of different automotive tools and equipment • Implement preventive automotive maintenance procedures • Understand the functions of automotive engine design, service, and assembly • Gain insights on lower and upper-end theory • Understand the basics of electricity and its associated systems • Recognize and use the components of charging and starting systems • Understand concepts of servicing computer system components • Apply methods of enhancing engine performance • Understand the functions of servicing exhaust and intake systems • Provide service and maintenance to manual and automatic transmissions • Apply methods of servicing brake systems • Apply methods of servicing heating and air-conditioning systems CERTIFICATION: Upon successful completion of the Automotive Technology course series, students will be prepared to sit for the Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) national certification exam to become a Certified Automotive Technician. Automobile & Light Truck Certification Tests (A1 - A9) Objective: To identify and recognize those Automobile and Light Truck (up to Class 3) Technicians who can demonstrate knowledge of the skills necessary to diagnose, service, and repair cars, SUVs, and light duty trucks. Tests Offered: A1 – Engine Repair (50 scored questions) A2 – Automatic Transmission/Transaxle (50) A3 – Manual Drive Train & Axles (40) A4 – Suspension & Steering (40) A5 – Brakes (45) A6 – Electrical/Electronic Systems (50) A7 – Heating & Air Conditioning (50) A8 – Engine Performance (50) Master Status Requirements: Those are certified in tests A1 – A8 are recognized as ASE-Certified Master Automobile Technicians. NOTE: A9 is NOT a requirement for Master Automobile Technician Status. Recertification: Technicians must retest every five years to retain their certification. The Automobile & Light Truck recertification tests (A1R – A8R) are about half as long as the initial certification tests. Each state may have additional licensing requirements, be sure to research your states requirements for employment by visiting your states occupation board.
