Designed to prepare students for entry-level positions as line technicians, shop foremen, service writers, service managers, or business owners, the DACC Automotive Technology program is certificated by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation/Automotive Service Excellence (NATEF/ASE). Completing courses, certificates, and/or degrees from an NATEF-certified school will enhance students’ ability to gain employment, as well as better prepare them to become NATEF certified.
Students are trained using state-of-the-art equipment. In the laboratories, they practice the same service and repair techniques required of any professional service technician working in the real world. Each class includes a number of carefully selected competencies that must be mastered in order to successfully complete the program. Students are trained in the areas of —
• Engine service
• Manual drive train and axles
• Electrical systems
• Heating and air conditioning
• Fuel and emissions
• Automatic transmission/transaxle
• Suspension and steering
The Automotive Technology program also offers two commercial driving classes, AUTO 130 and AUTO 131, which prepare students for the CDL exam. Classes are offered both during the day and at night, to accommodate work schedules.
