Students work in the automotive shop at United Tribes Technical College

Automotive technicians face a challenging future in the automotive field due to the increased complexity of the electronic controlled components. Government sources say the United States will need 32,000 new technicians every year just to keep up with the demand. The qualified automotive technician is assured full-time work and a favorable income.

The Automotive Technology (AUT) program provides theory plus the technical skills needed to enter the automotive repair job market. Upon completion, the graduate can continue a course of study in the field or pursue a career such as: Auto Specialist Line Technician, Service Manager, Shop Foreman, Service Consultant At The Apprentice/ Entry Level Position or as an owner of an independent repair facility.

Upon completion of the hours of each course, the graduate is qualified to take the Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certification test, a nationally recognized technician certification. UTTC automotive training facility is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment used in major dealerships and repair facilities.

The summer training session is required to allow the students to meet the minimum hours of training required by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation, Inc. (NATEF).

The Automotive Technology Program, working in conjunction with the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation, qualifies students to take the nationally Approved Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certification exams.
