Auto Tech accreditation

The Automotive Technology program at Central Lakes College in Brainerd is
now accredited by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation. Instructor Ray Johnson (shown)
received a certification plaque and letter acknowledging that the quality of
training offered at CLC meets criteria for high standards of program content. The standards pertain to tasks, tools and equipment, hours, and
instructor qualifications. Program standards are developed based on Automotive Service Excellence
(ASE) task lists and are designed to bring training programs to a level at
which participants are properly trained for entry level into the industry.

Once a training program meets the established standards and goes
through the accreditation process, it can be accredited as a program that
actually teaches technicians to today’s industry standards.
More than 350,000 professionals, including graduates of Central Lakes
College, hold ASE certifications and work in every part of the automotive
service industry.
“Today’s successful technician must possess an array of workplace
skills,” said Johnson. “And a unique blend of academic and technical skills. We
take pride in focusing on professionalism and working toward technical
NATEF reports that professional automotive
technicians can earn $50,000 or more per year and are in demand across the
country. There are unlimited opportunities for those who want to work with
advanced computerized control systems and the latest diagnostic equipment.
Automotive Technology at Central Lakes College
currently is an 11-month, 44-credit diploma program.
