Developing Skills for Success

About half of the coursework takes place in our well-equipped lab, where you’ll get hands-on experience. During the co-op work portion of your program (usually the last course taken), you’ll have the opportunity to work as a paid employee at a local dealership while continuing to earn college credit. Many of our students are offered jobs at the dealership where they have completed their co-op work experience.
