“The renovations to the automotive lab are incredible,” said Bob Oakes, Kirtland automotive instructor. “From a complete overhaul of the space to optimize workflow patterns, to entirely new equipment — this lab has it all. Kirtland has invested nearly $500,000 to streamline training and learning spaces, install all new equipment, computers and diagnostic equipment, creating what we believe to be one of the most state-of-the-art facilities in the state.”
