Automotive Services/Small Engine Repair

The Automotive Services/Small Engine Repair program is designed for students who are interested in working on vehicles and small engines and want to learn both in the classroom and in a hands-on garage.

Students learn about basic automotive and small engine maintenance and repair, general service station duties, and exhaust and engine systems. They work on donated and student vehicles and engines and build key skills such as teamwork, communication and customer service. 

This program is a Career Studies program for students who want to learn in a hands-on atmosphere at an alternative pace. These programs are designed to meet all the provisions of each student’s individualized educational program through providing challenging, developmentally appropriate career prep experiences.

Who is eligible to attend?

Typically juniors and seniors from our 24 component school districts who are interested in career training as part of their high school experience are eligible to enroll.

How do I enroll?

The first step is to meet with your home school guidance counselor to learn how Career & Technical Education can benefit your career path. Your counselor can then help you arrange a tour of our Albany (Colonie) or Schoharie campuses, or the Center for Advanced Technology at Mohonasen. They can also help you begin the enrollment process.
