Today’s high tech automobiles will require trained technicians to keep them performing well. Students enrolled in Auto Technology at IVVC will learn how to service and maintain these complicated 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 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 tear down and 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. Yes, you will get your hands dirty when you take Auto Technology, but you will also have the satisfaction of learning how to repair a car and prepare for a future in the automotive industry.
