    The Automotive Technology Program is designed to ensure that students reach their maximum potential in the Rhode Island Department of Education mandates, NATEF and AYES certification requirements. At each level the mastery of business and industry standards are met through a variety of assessment techniques. The program offers instruction and practical experience in the repair of all types of vehicles. This includes computer diagnostics, hydraulic systems, heating and air conditioning systems, alignment and electrical systems, engine performance, engine repair, brake systems, suspension systems, steering systems, as well as engine tune-ups. Upon successful completion of the entire program, the student has the opportunity to become certified through NATEF (National Automotive Teachers Educational Foundation) and AYES (Automotive Youth Educational System) licensing processes.
