Automotive Technology at Columbus StateWhat if I have experience or previous training?

The curriculum is also designed to allow students to start at the level that is best for them. College credit may be granted for previous experience and/or training. Students considering this option can visit the Automotive Technology Department Office to get more information about testing out of basic courses and life experience credit.

Can a student just take automotive courses?

Students can enroll in automotive courses without taking non-automotive courses providing they meet the prerequisites for those courses. Upon completion of these courses, students will receive a grade and college credit, which can be applied toward the degree requirements in the future.

Can students get part time jobs in the field while going to school?

Yes. Employers often contact the college for part time help. These positions are posted on lab bulletin boards and are announced by the faculty who are more than willing to help a student gain employment. Working in the field while taking classes enhances your education as well as your finances.
