Automotive Technology Advising Tips
• AUTT 1010 is offered during the Summer quarter. Students for the Automotive Technology program are selected based on their performance in this class.
• Before enrolling in AUTT 1010, students must have college-level reading and math skills and earn a minimum score on a mechanical aptitude test.
• As needed to achieve college-level reading skills, students may be required to complete RDLS 0100 College Reading Strategies prior to or during the Fall quarter. Equivalent classes may be accepted.
• A basic tool set is required by the beginning of the second quarter of classes. Students who do not obtain their tools may be disenrolled.
• This program utilizes a hybrid format. Twenty percent of the instruction is online.
