Automotive Trades Technology

Albany and Schoharie campuses

From computerized diagnostics to hands-on repair, students in the Automotive Trades Technology program learn how to service and maintain all types of cars and light trucks. This two-year program covers a range of topics, from engine theory and introduction to hybrid vehicle technology to specialized tools and equipment and customer service and shop management.

Students work on late-model vehicles donated by auto manufacturers as well as actual customer vehicles that are brought to class for servicing and repair.

In this ASE Education Foundation-accredited program, students can earn ASE/EPA 609, SP/2 and ASE certifications.
