Automotive Service Technician Foundation-Level

Jump start your automotive career

The Automotive Service Technician program will train you to become a skilled technician. You’ll develop your preventative maintenance and repair skills, build your understanding of steering and other vital systems, and learn to fulfill other industry needs. Not only is this program a great introduction to the automotive repair and service industry, but it will also create opportunities for apprenticeship positions in dealerships, specialty repair shops, parts departments and even as a service writer.

This 30-week program will provide students with skills and theory to aid them in obtaining an apprenticeship or other related work in the automotive field.

A foundation program allows you to learn the basic knowledge and skills needed for entry into a trade. It is typically taught in both a classroom and in-school shop setting. You do not need an employer sponsor to participate. In fact, one of the main reasons to complete a foundation program is to gain some experience and familiarity with the trade to make it easier for you to find an employer who will sponsor your apprenticeship.

Students who successfully complete the program will receive credit for Level 1 technical training after beginning an apprenticeship.
