Automotive Technology and Collision Academy

The responsibilities of automotive service technicians and mechanics have evolved from simple mechanical and auto body repairs to high-level, technology-related work.

Today’s automobiles possess integrated electronic systems and on-board computers that regulate performance. This, coupled with the introduction of hybrid fuel technology, has increased the demand for highly skilled workers who can use computerized shop equipment and work with electronic components while maintaining their expertise with traditional hand tools.

Technicians must have an increasingly broad knowledge of how vehicles’ components work and interact, and they also must be able to work with electronic diagnostic equipment, digital manuals and reference materials.
