NATEF/ASE Certified Automotive Technology I, II
The increasing use of advanced technology in automobiles is leading to new opportunities for technicians, especially those with specialized skills or certifications. Students with good diagnostic and problem-solving abilities, training in electronics, and computer skills are expected to have the best opportunities.
Through the nationally recognized Automotive Youth Educational Systems program, students participate in internships at local dealerships during the summer and school year that many times lead to paying jobs. For more information, go to www.ayes.org, www.ase.com, or www.natef.org.
Students in this program have an opportunity to enroll in Rockland Community College’s High School Enrichment Program, which allows them to earn college credits. Articulation agreements with other colleges and institutions also exist.
