Why Automotive Training?
According to the US Department of Labor (Bureau of Labor Statistics)*, there were over 700,000 Automotive Service Technicians and Mechanics employed in the United States in 2012. This number is supposed to increase by 60,000 in the next 10 years leaving a good outlook on job opportunities for qualified jobseekers. With more consumers purchasing used vehicles that frequently need maintained or repaired, the growth of this occupation is set to remain steady. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Automotive Technicians will earn an average of $17.60/hour or $36,610 annually.
We have ASE Certified Instructors, and our students are trained to be PA State Inspection Technicians and Enhanced Emissions Inspection Technicians. Our students are given the opportunity to take ASE Certifications prior to graduation. An Associate Degree in Specialized Technology, or Diploma is awarded upon graduation.
