The number of vehicles on the road continues to grow, and we are proud to equip our students with the skills and knowledge they need to begin a career in the automotive repair industry.
Wichita, KS (PRWEB) July 24, 2012
Vatterott College in Wichita, located at 8853 East 37th Street North, now offers an Automotive Technology diploma program. This comprehensive program is designed to equip students with the skills necessary for a career in the automotive repair field.
The Vatterott College-Wichita campus provides a hands-on program offering training in areas such as engine repair, brake systems, electrical systems, and heating and air conditioning. These topics are important in preparing students with a wide range of knowledge that allows them to perform a variety of automotive services.
According to the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics, as the number of vehicles in use continues to grow, “more entry-level service technicians will be needed to do basic maintenance and repair, such as brake pad replacements and oil changes. The increasing lifespan of late-model cars and light trucks will further increase demand for qualified workers.” Graduates of the program will be qualified to apply for jobs at various types of facilities including: independent automotive shops, dealerships and companies with fleets that hire trained professionals to repair and service vehicles.
“This new program is a great addition to our curriculum,” said Michael Harris, Campus Director, Vatterott College of Wichita. “The number of vehicles on the road continues to grow, and we are proud to equip our students with the skills and knowledge they need to begin a career in the automotive repair industry.”
