Before you do, let's make sure you know what to expect from this program.
This class blends different teaching methods. It features classroom teaching, online assignments and shop work. You will be taught how to solve problems using the skills and experience that you will learn. We begin your training in the Auto I program. You will begin by learning safety and tools. Then we move you up to electrical/electronic theory and application as well as diagnosing. After the first semester you start to apply your skills in the shop and learn about brakes and braking systems. Using tools and equipment, you will be able to solve everyday problems. This is not an easy class and involves a lot of work, projects, after school hours, tests and more. However, it is a fun program with lots of hands on learning and will provide you with real world experience to get you ready for a career in this industry. You also get to compete in SkillsUSA and a chance to compete in the Hot Rodders of Tomorrow Engine Challenge.
In Auto II, you are working in the shop full time. You are even working on customers' cars. Jobs can range from a simple oil change or fixing electrical issues, to removing and rebuilding or replacing an engine. You still need to complete your class work and online training as well. We strive for more of an industry feel. You are also able to compete as a senior in the National Automotive Technology Competition contest as well as SkillsUSA.
