Automotive Technology

LBCC’s Automotive Technology program will train you to diagnose, repair, and maintain modern automobiles and light trucks using the latest diagnostic and undercar equipment. In cooperation with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, the National Coalition of Certification Centers, and Snap-on Corporation, we combine operational theory with hands-on activities. The classes are designed to prepare you to pass the Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certification tests and are conducted in modern, well-equipped classrooms and laboratories.

The automotive technology shop contains equipment for rebuilding and testing components such as engines and transmissions, a four-wheel computerized alignment rack, tune-up and computer control diagnostic equipment, 21 vehicle hoists, a chassis dynamometer, engine analyzers, and many specialized tools.
