Automotive Master Technician Certificate

Completion of this certificate program will prepare students for the National Automotive Service Excellence Certification examinations to become a Certified Master Automobile Technician and a Certified Engine Machinist. In addition, students will develop troubleshooting and analysis skills that will increase their diagnostic and repair abilities. Applied computer skills and information distribution within repair facilities are incorporated in this certificate.

Credit Hours Required: 44-45

Note: National Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certification is essential to individuals preparing for positions in the automotive industry. ASE certification requires hands-on working experience as well as completion of written examinations. Two years of post high school educational training, such as that offered in the automotive certificate and degree programs at Yavapai College, may be substituted for up to one year of the hands on work experience requirement of the ASE certification.
