Automotive service technicians inspect, maintain, and repair automobiles and light trucks that run on gasoline, electricity, or alternative fuels such as ethanol.  Automotive service technicians’ and mechanics’ responsibilities have evolved from simple mechanical repairs to high-level technology-related work. Today, integrated electronic systems and complex computers regulate vehicles and their performance while on the road. Technicians must have an increasingly broad knowledge of how vehicles’ complex components work and interact.

They also must be able to work with electronic diagnostic equipment, digital manuals, and reference materials. The increasing sophistication of automobiles requires workers who can use computerized shop equipment and work with electronic components while maintaining their skills with traditional hand tools.

CPI’s Automotive Technology Program is designed to provide the necessary educational background and practical training to repair today’s automobiles and light trucks.

Theoretical knowledge and practical experience are combined to provide students with the occupational skills needed to be successful. PA State Inspection.  Emissions, MACS, SP2, and ASE included.
