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

#3 Take the Placement Exam.
To develop the skills and knowledge required to service today's automobiles, each student must possess or develop essential foundation skills in reading, writing, and mathematics. To this end, a formal skills assessment instrument known as the "CPT" for College Placement Test is used to determine if each student has a reasonable probability of success as an automobile technician.

All students must place into ALS 100 with 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 these classes 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.

Students who must wait to enroll in automotive classes, and placed into ALS 100 and/or Math 60 are encouraged to take those classes during their first term at LBCC.
#4 Contact an Automotive Technology Program Advisor.
All Automotive classes require an Instructor Signature before any student can enroll. Students new to the Automotive Technology program should send an e-mail to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a new student advising session.
