If you are not yet a full time LBCC student, follow this link for 7 steps to enroll in Automotive Technology classes.
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
Students wishing to enroll in Automotive Technology classes at LBCC must request a spot on the Priority Enrollment List. You can find this at tinyurl.com/priority-enroll.
Due to recent curriculum changes no new students will be admitted to any Automotive Technology class until Fall term of 2014. In June of 2014 students new to LBCC Automotive Technology will be allowed to register for Fall 2014 based upon the date they complete the Priority Enrollment form.
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. This often takes several terms after getting on the priority enrollment list with Fall term having the most available seats for new students.
Students are encouraged to find Automotive Technology related employment while waiting to enroll in LBCC Automotive classes. Information to help you find a job is at www.linnbenton.edu/auto/jobs.html

While you are waiting to enroll in Automotive classes, be sure you are on the Priority Enrollment List and be sure you are qualified to enroll.
Many 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, place into writing 95 and Math 60 (or higher) before they will be allowed to enroll in any Automotive Technology class.
