When someone needs their vehicle fixed, it’s usually an urgent situation. If you know how to do it, and get it done quickly, you earn superhero status.
People with vehicles drive for lots of reasons. They:
don’t rely on public transportation
need to get to work
have to take the kids somewhere (everywhere)
None of it can wait. Most people can get by for a day or two, but when they need their vehicle fixed, it needs to be done now—and done right.
We love to train world-class auto technicians. Chrysler has donated several vehicles to Kirtland Community College. They donated nearly a dozen vehicles in the past for use in our labs. The most recent one they donated was a Jeep Liberty.
Our instructors put bugs (aka problems, or faults) in each one. Students have to chase and diagnose the issues. By the time you are certified, you’ll be familiar with the disassemble/reassemble process. You’ll know the ins and outs of vehicles, from the basics and maintenance to steering and electrical systems.
Our curriculum and labs are so impressive that Chrysler sends service technicians to the Roscommon campus auto tech lab at least once each year for training on new technology in their vehicles.
Even high school students throughout northern Michigan are familiar with Kirtland’s auto tech program, including some who attend the Tawas’ IRESA Career Tech Center and Houghton Lake High School. They are using our curriculum and earning direct college credit (also known as dual-enrollment) for taking classes sponsored by Kirtland.
If you have been thinking about becoming a certified auto technician, stop wondering and go for it. We’ll deliver valuable training in new and emerging technologies so you can be the one people send their friends and family members to when their wheels need work.
