From Arielle Breen’s article on the Gaylord Herald Times website:

At least a half a dozen Gaylord students who elected to take classes at Kirtland Community College are finding a newly remodeled auto lab at the Roscommon campus this week.

Sarah Holecheck, Kirtland’s director of public information, said the lab renovation costed about $500,000.

“Previously the lab had been compartmentalized into three or four small areas so there wasn’t a lot of continuity,” Holecheck said. “They will be doing everything start to finish. It could be something (such as) an oil or a break change job, tire balancing and rotation — but then they do get into rebuilding transmissions (and) engines.”

Holecheck said students will be studying in a hands-on style coupled with classroom learning.

She said students have nine different auto lifts as well as additional computer technology.

“The auto technology industry has really taken a turn and it’s a lot more mental and diagnostic before they get to the part of the repair,” Holecheck said. “So, (students have) got to be able to do some critical thinking.”
