The instructional facilities are equipped with some of the finest, most up-to-date training materials and equipment available. Being accepted into this program means learning the latest in automotive technology. Those entering the program are committing to two full years of automotive training which includes fall, winter, spring and summer terms both years. Upon graduation, students will earn an Associate of Applied Science degree in automotive technology and complete a full year of on-the-job experience, and Chrysler manufacturer training credentials.

Chrysler Corporate dealers see these program students as their “service technicians of the future.” This program admits students on a limited entry basis and is a two-step process.
