All Automotive classes are held at the Advanced Transportation Technology Center (ATTC) located at 2000 W Oak St in Lebanon. Click here for a Map to the ATTC.
It is strongly recommended each student enrolling in the Automotive Technology program have a clean driving record, a valid driver's license, and proof of insurance for any vehicles they may drive to LBCC. If you can be identified as a "High Risk Driver" it may be impossible to find employment in the automotive service and repair field. Information on who is a High Risk Driver
All students entering the Automotive Technology program will be assessed a $990.00 tool fee per quarter during the first year (3 terms) of the program. Upon successfully meeting all requirements for the One Year Certificate in Automotive Maintenance and Light Repair students will earn one of two Snap-on tool options. Details are at this link to our Official Tool Policy
For the best quality of instruction we keep class sizes small. New students must wait until a spot becomes available before they can enroll in Automotive classes. Students new to LBCC Automotive Technology will be allowed to register starting Fall, Winter, or Spring term based upon the date they complete the Priority Enrollment form.
New students will be required to complete a one credit Destination Graduation course and may not be permitted to register if this course is not completed.
All students must have a CPT reading placement score of 67 or higher. This score is part of the Applied Learning Strategies (ALS) placement. Automotive students must also place into writing 95 and Math 60 (or higher) before they will be allowed to enroll in any Automotive Technology class. If you placed into Math 20 or Writing 90 you must complete them before you can enroll in Automotive Technology classes. You are permitted to re-take the CPT if you feel your test scores were too low.
Link to CPT details and preparation materials.
Students placing into ALS 100 and/or Writing 95 are encouraged to these classes before enrolling in Automotive Technology classes.
If you placed into math 60, we encourage you to take that class while you wait for an Automotive Technology class to become available.
