AUTOMOTIVE TECHNOLOGY
Certificate – 2 years
Students have the opportunity to choose between the Certificate program and the Associate of Applied Technology degree program.
The certificate program covers the theory, diagnosis, and repair of the automobile. It is designed for those students who want to gain
