Community College Automotive Technology Program Boasts a 100 Percent Field Related Placement Record

The Department of Automotive Technology at New York’s Columbia-Greene Community College (C-GCC) offers several options for the study in the operation, diagnosis, and repair of the complex systems found in today’s automobiles. The department has master certification from the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) for its core training program and its Toyota program. ASE master certification verifies that the college's core automotive technology curriculum has met the highest industry standards. The Toyota Technical Education Network (T-TEN) was designed by the college and Toyota. It is intended to provide a highly trained pool of qualified workers able to maintain today’s technology-laden cars and trucks. T-TEN was established in 1986 in collaboration with approximately 50 vocational colleges and Toyota dealers. Applicants have a wide selection of curriculum choices, and through the Advisory council the dealers play a direct role in the administration and ongoing improvement of the program.

Since its inception, 100 automotive technology students have obtained/retained employment with Toyota or Lexus dealerships. Many are incumbent workers who have attended for manufacturer specific training. To date, over 312 Columbia-Greene students have participated. Of those students completing the degree, placement is near 100 percent.
