SANFORD - The Central Carolina Community College Automotive Systems Technology two-semester Certificate program will be offered at night, beginning this fall.
The automotive industry has changed dramatically in recent years. Service technicians have replaced mechanics. Today's automobiles have become sophisticated systems with electronic components and embedded microprocessors. Mechanical components are being replaced with computers and circuit boards.
Because of the changing industry standards, the need for qualified technicians is growing rapidly. Graduates are being recruited for entry-level positions and go to work for dealerships, independent auto shops, and some start their own auto maintenance and repair businesses.
CCCC has well-equipped, spacious auto shops that support its automotive programs. Computerized diagnostic equipment, as well as technically advanced service equipment, prepares students with real world shop experiences. The shops are capable of handling all service and repair problems from bumper to bumper.
CCCC offers the Automotive Associate Degree (five semesters), Automotive Diploma (three semesters), and Automotive Certificate (two semesters) programs.
Students take classes in engine fundamentals, brake and electrical systems, and emission controls. They study chassis electronics, suspension and steering systems, and automotive heating and air conditioning. Advanced studies in the two-year degree program include classes in engine performance and repair, transmissions, and engine electrical management.
