The goal of the Automotive Technology department is to train the next generation of automotive technicians in bumper-to-bumper repair. Our college has partnerships with General Motors (GM ASEP) and Ford Motor Company (Ford ASSET) to offer cohort-based brand specific technician training. We also have a General Technician program that includes a broader look into several import brands. They include Subaru (Subaru U), Nissan (Nissan Technician Training Academy), Stellantis (Mopar CAP), Audi (Audi Education Partnership), and now Mercedes-Benz (MB Campus). We partner with the Greater Los Angeles Motor Car dealers Association (GLANCDA) locally. All program options prepare students for the workforce by providing classroom and hands-on instruction as well as an opportunity for paid on-the-job training.
