This certificate in Automotive Service and Repair will provide the graduates with the skills to be an entry-level technician in the automotive field. The Certificate will cover courses traditionally presented in the first year of an Associate of Science in the Automotive Technology degree program. The program will target both full and part-time students.
An Automotive Service and Repair certificate program will give students a choice between the full degree program with its general education courses and advanced diagnostic classes of the second year of the Degree program and possible no post-secondary education at all. An automotive technology curriculum expands career opportunities for Nashua Community College students without major increases in resources and fits well with the College’s current Mission and Strategic Plan. While students earning this certificate could be eligible for immediate employment or career advancement in the field of automotive service, power sports, and equipment repair; the program would also provide students with an excellent introduction to a related Associate degree.
Students will be required to provide their own personal protective equipment such as safety glasses, hearing protection, welding gloves, and protective shoes. Students will also need to purchase a basic automotive tool kit and roll cabinet. Substantial discounts are available to enrolled students. An annual “Tool Day” takes place every August for students needing tools or tool kits. Approximate tool kit cost is between $2,800 and $4,500 (prices subject to change).
