Level I Certificate, Level II Certificate, and Associate of Applied Science degree option
*Program start Fall 2024*

 The Automotive Technology program offers a Level I Certificate option (19 credit hours), a Level II Certificate option (39 credit hours), and provides the opportunity for a student to complete an AAS with additional general education requirements. 

The Automotive Technology program utilizes Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) curriculum and includes both theory and hands-on application.  NCCC is currently working toward becoming an ASE-Accredited program.  Students completing this program will cover ASE standards for the Automobile Service Technician (AST) test.  

ASE is a nationally recognized accreditor that provides three levels of certification tests, the Entry-Level (previously ASE Student), the Professional Technician (that also requires hands-on work experience) and the Master Certification.  Students will have the opportunity to take several Entry-Level Certification tests throughout the curriculum of this program.  Completion of any level of this program provides equivalent hands-on work experience that can be applied toward professional certification.

 

Prerequisites

AAS students will need to demonstrate proficiencies based on the Mandatory Placement Policy, or by taking the recommended/ required classes.  Some of the courses in this curriculum have specific prerequisites.
