Central Piedmont Community College: Automotive Systems Technology
There are more than 250 million cars, trucks, and buses on the road today - all requiring maintenance, inspection, and repair. As a result, the need for skilled, automotive technicians is greater than ever. Our automotive systems technology program will equip you with the technical knowledge and skills you need to be successful in the transportation industry and find employment.
Our automotive training includes both classroom and lab experiences that will teach you how to repair, service, and maintain automobiles of all different makes and models. Class time is spent studying theory, the servicing and operation of brakes, electrical/electronic systems, engine performance, steering/suspension, automatic transmission/transaxles, engine repair, climate control, and manual drive trains. When you finish the automotive technology program, you will be able to:
- apply broad, in-depth knowledge of basic automotive systems encountered in a typical repair environment and be able to fully utilize service information
- perform basic electrical and mechanical diagnosis, measurement, and repair of vehicles using appropriate tools, equipment, procedures, and service information
- describe the operation of, diagnose, and repair complex control systems using appropriate test equipment and service information
