Automotive Service

 Start your engine for a career in automotive service.

The automotive industry is always changing, which makes it a dynamic field in which to establish your career if you like working on vehicles. The Automotive Service program at Northwest Technical College features state-of-the-art labs equipped with current service and testing equipment so students are well-prepared to work with today’s technology. Throughout their training, they learn the theory and techniques behind a variety of service and diagnostic procedures necessary to maintain the vehicles operating on our roadways. Classroom and hands-on training will cover topics including brakes, power train systems, and an introduction to hybrids.

A block of overlapping courses allows students to complete either the Automotive Service program or the High-Performance Engine Machining program and then go on to take additional courses to complete both degree programs. Likewise, the Automotive Chassis & Powertrain certificate and the Motorsports Technology diploma share course requirements. NTC is among a handful of colleges in the nation that offer the option to pursue these complementary programs at the same time. Completing multiple credentials gives students a competitive skill set and expanded employment opportunities in motorsports and commercial automotive service.
