Welcome to the Automotive Technology program at the WMCTC:
This course will teach shop safety, work habits, and the technical skills necessary to successfully pass some certification areas. There are 8 total areas of certification, and at the CTC students will concentrate in the areas of Brakes & Braking Systems and Front End & Steering Systems. Other areas, such as General Maintenance, Engine Repair and Electrical Systems will receive attention as well.
The Automotive Technology Field:
As automobiles have become increasingly more technical, the automotive field has become more complicated and demanding. The Automotive Service program is certified by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF) and the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). This demands a very exhaustive curriculum in specific areas of certification. To be a mechanic in the state of Michigan, a person must take tests which will show their expertise and allow them to be licensed.

2nd Year Students: Upon successful completion of the first year and/or instructor recommendation, you can become eligible for the Engineering Technology rotation.
