Comprehensive Automotive Technology Certificate

The Stark State College Comprehensive Automotive Technology Certificate contains the core automotive courses that are in the automotive technology associate degree program and are structured to prepare students for a productive career in the automotive service and repair industry.

In our two state-of-the-art automotive facilities, students use the latest tools and diagnostic equipment to apply practical service techniques to our fleet of late-model vehicles. This builds hands-on skills that can be applied immediately upon graduation.

The curriculum is accredited by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF) preparing students to pursue Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certification. Students successfully completing this course of study will receive a Comprehensive Automotive Technology Certificate from Stark State.

Students desiring to obtain an associate degree in applied science in the Automotive and Transportation Department can chose to add the academic courses that are listed in the two-year associate degree automotive program.
