Students enrolled in Auto Technology at IVVC will learn how to service and maintain high tech vehicles by way of classroom instruction and lab work. First year students will learn the fundamentals of safety, lubrication, tire and wheel servicing, engine design, and automotive braking systems. Approximately 80% of their time is spent in the shop watching demonstrations and repairing live vehicles.

Second year students move on to diagnostic functions on the car’s computer systems, engine theory, and also perform alignments using our state-of-the-art equipment. All students have the opportunity to learn how to provide service writer and parts person functions as the IVVC shop strives to provide a professional shop-like atmosphere. Students enrolled in this program will be expected to participate in routine physical activities on a daily basis that will foster the development of movement skills and enhance health-related fitness. (20104A001 & 002)
