Throughout the U.S. there is a serious shortage of professional auto technicians. Unlike many other industries, automotive service is in constant demand. Auto manufacturers and dealers alike continue to express the need for trained technicians now and in the future. The Automotive Department encourages both women and men to participate in this rewarding profession.
At ACC, the technical training programs are designed to meet the needs of a modern automotive service facility. Emphasis is placed on real world approaches to diagnostic skill building and a thorough understanding of system theory and operations. Independent, self-directed learning is promoted through hands-on experience with mockups and modern vehicles and use of computer programs and audiovisuals. Students completing degree and/or certificate programs will leave ACC with the workplace skills and professionalism necessary to succeed in the automotive workforce.
