Automotive Technology

Do you have what it takes to work on today’s high-tech vehicles?

Automotive technicians must be as comfortable with computers as they are with wrenches. The vehicles rolling off the assembly line have multiple computers on board and it takes a complex set of skills to keep them running safely, dependably, and efficiently.

In Perry Tech’s one-year Automotive Technology program, you'll learn theory and operation in the classroom and practice those techniques in a well-equipped shop.

With a balance of mechanical and technical skills, you’ll be prepared to work as an entry-level automotive technician in dealerships, independent shops, parts supply houses, mobile services, and fleet service shops.

Not sure that your schedule will allow for taking a full load of course work during the day?  That’s okay, we have you covered with a night school option.  This program offering allows students to not only maintain their current life demands, but also provides a platform for those seeking to take their automotive skills to the next level.
