The Automotive Technology program is a comprehensive two-year program combining classroom instruction and hands-on training. The program is based on the eight Automotive Service Excellence (A.S.E.) topics in the National Technicians Certification program to prepare students for the A.S.E. mechanic certification tests.
CBC's Automotive faculty aim to bring innovative technology into the classroom and the lab. Automotive Technology students learn the basics of computer diagnosis as well as traditional tool usage as they participate in the entire repair process: evaluating, repairing, and maintaining vehicles.
Prerequisites for entrance into the CBC Automotive Technology program:
A one-year certificate is available to students completing the first four quarters of the automotive program including required academic classes.
The department requires students achieve a minimum grade of 2.0 to be able to continue enrollment in major courses. The Associate in Applied Science degree also requires a minimum grade of 2.0 for each major course. A student who achieves a grade of 1.9 or lower in any required major courses may repeat that course once to attempt to achieve a grade of 2.0 or higher. Exceptions to this policy must be approved by the Dean of the program prior to enrollment and must be based on extenuating circumstances.
