The Automotive Technology program prepares students to work in area automotive dealerships or repair shops. There are two different groups of directed electives for the program, depending on the sponsoring dealership or repair shop:

  • Automotive Service Educational Program (ASEP) in cooperation with General Motors;
  • Automotive Training Educational Program (ATEP) in cooperation with other local dealerships.

This program alternates periods of formal training with periods of on-the-job experience at participating dealerships. The periods in the dealership are designed to provide practical experience as reinforcement of concepts taught during the school terms. Students must remain sponsored by participating dealerships during the entire training period. Nashville State assists students in obtaining dealer sponsorship.

Graduates of the program should be able to:

  • Demonstrate the use of diagnostic equipment and special tools used in the service department.
  • Build a working relationship with fellow technicians.
  • Establish and maintain a training path committed to lifelong learning.
  • Be familiar with the dealership operation and procedures in the service department.

Admission Requirements

Prospective students must be at least 18 years old, have a valid driver’s license, a good driving record, pass an interview process and background check for dealership sponsor. Due to the schedule of work at the dealerships, the schedule for this program may be different than that of the college.
