Auto/Diesel Technology is a two-year diploma program designed to train students to become skilled technicians in automotive and heavy-duty diesel maintenance.

The student will learn to use industry standard tools to troubleshoot and diagnose computer and electronic systems, overhaul engines and transmissions, and service brakes, steering, suspensions, electronics and all other systems and sub-systems for cars, as well light, medium, and heavy-duty trucks.

Upon completing the program, students are prepared to be entry level technicians for both automotive and heavy duty vehicles, significantly increasing their opportunities in a competitive job market.

Students will attain at least two ASE certifications by graduation. In the automotive and heavy-duty industry, ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) certifications are highly recognized and respected as the standard of achievement.

Selected Bible classes offered through Crown College of the Bible provide a biblical foundation that will guide students to lead the life of integrity that is essential to honoring Christ in their work. This coursework will result in the completion of the Foundation for Christian Life certificate program.
