Thank you for your interest in our Automotive Technician training program. As you may be aware we look for โ€œreal or liveโ€ customer work as a means for increasing the relevancy of our training program. As an educational institution, our intention is not to be in competition with local trade shops; therefore, only work needed for training is accepted.  Generally speaking only vehicles less than 15 years old will meet the requirements of training for the current automotive job market. 

General Repair Schedule

  • Fall and Spring quarters: basic tune-up, electrical work, transmission and air conditioning recharging
  • Winter and Summer quarters: electronics and computer controls, emissions, brakes, suspension and base engine
  • Since we are primarily in the business of training students and the length of the training work day is shorter than local repair centers, 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., the work will most likely take longer to complete.

Cost of Repairs

  • Shop fee (book time not actual):  $25.00/hour
  • Parts: List price
  • Material fees: will be determined

Note: Customers may supply their own parts if the part quality meets repair requirements; otherwise, parts may be purchased through our suppliers at list price.

If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to write them on the form and the instructor or senior student will get back to you to discuss your questions.
