Today’s automotive technicians command impressive salaries if they have the proper education, training and experience.
The Capital Region BOCES CTE Automotive Tech Prep program is a one-year, accelerated program that enables high school seniors to earn college credits while still in high school. Students also may work toward obtaining national Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certification, which are valued by employers seeking qualified automotive technicians.
Automotive Tech Prep students learn about engine performance and fuel systems, repair and maintenance and the latest hybrid vehicle technology. Upon completion, students may advance their education in college or at specialized automotive training schools.
Please note: While this is a one-year program, some students choose to enroll in Automotive Trades Technology as juniors and move up to Automotive Tech Prep for their senior year.
