Automotive Technology II is a yearlong, two-hour class designed to give students a more advanced concept of the diagnosis and repair of today’s passenger vehicles. This course is the second of two courses to complete the automotive pathway. Upon completion of the program, students will possess the necessary knowledge and skills to enter a post-secondary technical school or move into the workforce as an entry-level technician. Students in this course will share classroom and lab time while learning about steering and suspension, brake systems, engine repair, engine performance, heating, and air conditioning and electrical and electronic systems. Along with this curriculum, students will be working in a live shop setting, which means they will be diagnosing and repairing customer vehicles, ordering parts and talking with customers.
Throughout the entire pathway, there will be a strong emphasis on teamwork, work ethics, critical thinking, accountability in the workplace and the vitality of any job (regardless of status) being executed properly.
