Automotive Technology

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​overview

​With the advent of hybrid, plug-in electric, alternative fuels, and other technologies, modern autos are now run by complex computers and networked electronic systems.  The role of the service technician has transcended from just mechanical repair to high-tech proficiency, creating a need for workers who can use computerized shop equipment and a huge service information library in combination with traditional hand tools.​

The automotive programs at EVC cover it all, providing everything you'll need to become a certified service technician. Sponsored by American Honda Corporation, our program has resources and vehicles available to our students that are not offered at other schools, including state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment, late-model vehicles, and intensive hands-on training.  Employers frequently contact us knowing we produce some of the best graduates in the industry.

In addition to seven separate certificates, we offer two fully-accredited Associate degrees with most course work and credits transferrable towards a four-year college.  Our students are employed at new car dealerships, independent repair facilities, fleet operations, customization facilities, among others. Some of our students progress to management positions, engineering programs, diagnostics/tool design, and other related fields.  The opportunities are endless.
