• Under Car Technician – Automatic Transmission

    Career Pathway Certificate

    The Under Car Technician - Automatic Transmission Program combines the initial courses of the Associate of Applied Science (AAS) Automotive Service Technology degree to provide the student with an opportunity to gain entry level employment. This alternate first-year schedule offers accelerated employment qualification for the student. These courses train the student in the skills necessary to earn certification from Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) in the specified areas of A2, A3, A4, and C1, as described in the ASE Alignment Section. Coursework also qualifies the student to earn American Welding Society (AWS) certification. The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence requires two years of documented time in trade before testing, and this nine month program is awarded 4.5 months equivalency. The AWS requires one year of documented time in trade before testing.

    Program outcomes include the skills for entry-level employment in the industry as auto technicians maintaining and repairing passenger cars and light trucks, including automatic and manual transmission rebuilding and service, drive axle service and repair, transfer case service and repair, front-end repair and alignment, and starting and charging system repair. These classes comprise an alternate first year schedule of our AAS degree in Automotive Service Technology. They focus on one skill set necessary for employment within the automotive service industry.
