Automotive Technology 1 


Quarter Course (1 unit) 

This course is designed to train students to function and work safely in an automotive shop. This course will develop basic skills that will assist students in becoming productive automotive technicians or assist them as they enter a related field as a skilled worker. The course will include both theory and actual repair projects to develop these skills. Approximately 40% of the time will be shop or lab work and 60% will be theory in the classroom. Hands-on activities in the shop will be used to simulate the work environment in compliance with government regulations of the handling and disposal of hazardous chemicals. Strong emphasis will be on the use of service manuals (both hard copy and computer programmed) for proper procedures as well as shop safety and participation. The Automotive Technology program is NATEF certified and has an articulation agreement with Nashville Auto Diesel College in all automotive areas.
