From Stuart Price’s article on the fourstateshomepage.com website:
The Auto Tech Program at Crowder College has received accreditation by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation. Students in Crowder’s program will now be certified in eight different areas ranging from engine repair, automatic and manual transmission, to suspension and steering.
Crowder instructors say this means graduates meet strict national industry standards upon completion of the Auto Tech Program curriculum.
“This one we qualified with more hours and more areas, so they gave us the Automotive Service Technology certification, which just means that we teach more subjects, and have enough contact hours with the students,” said Auto Tech instructor Kirk Roelfsema.
