Automotive Technology

Do you have what it takes to work on today’s 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 skills to keep them running safely, dependably, and efficiently.

In Perry Tech’s one-year Automotive Technology program, you will study theory and operation in the classroom and practice those techniques in a well-equipped shop. With a balance of mechanical and technical skills, the course prepares graduates to work as an entry-level automotive technician in dealerships, independent shops, parts supply houses, mobile services, fleet service shops and more.

Not sure that your schedule will allow for taking a full load of course work during the daytime? We have you covered with two offerings for this program with a day and night school option. The night course offered 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. Start your career in Automotive Technology by scheduling your tour today!
