From an article on The Times website:
The Automotive Service Technology Program at Northeast Technology Center’s Pryor Campus has received accreditation by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF). To achieve this recognition, the school’s automotive training program underwent rigorous evaluation by NATEF examiners using nationally accepted standards of excellence in areas such as instruction, facilities and equipment.
“This is great news for automotive-minded young people and their parents,” said Donald Seyfer, former NATEF Chair. “Because this program increases cooperation between local education and industry leaders, it gives added assurance that NTC’s graduates will be employable entry-level technicians.”
