JOB OPPORTUNITIES

The number of jobs for automotive service technicians is projected to steadily grow in the next ten years. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported that the median annual salary of an automotive mechanic was $37,850 in 2015, which amounts to $18.20 per hour. According to SimplyHired.com, the average annual income for an A.S.E.-certified master technician is $45,000. At the height of their careers, some master automotive mechanics can expect to make twice that much. 

ACCREDITATION
The automotive program is certified by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundations (NATEF). This program is a division of Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). This national accreditation, which has been in place since 2000, assures employers that the students have been trained with the most up-to-date curriculum, tools, and equipment required by NATEF’s strict standards. 

COLLEGE CREDIT
Students can earn up to 16 hours of articulated credit from State Fair Community College.
