How to Enroll in the LBCC Automotive Program

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 with a CPT reading placement score of 67 or higher.  Automotive students must also place into WR095 College Writing Fundamentals and MTH050 Number Sense and Critical Thinking.   If you placed into WR090 you must complete this class 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.

#4 Attend a New Student Center Orientation
         After you complete the LBCC Application Procedure, an e-mail will be sent to your LBCC student e-mail. It contains a link to schedule your personal New Student Center Orientation appointment.   Using this link will make your New Student Center Orientation process much easier.
