Program Objective

Provide the graduate with the entry-level knowledge and skills required to correctly test, diagnose, replace, repair and adjust as necessary the components of the mechanical, electronic, hydraulic, and accessories systems on current MOPAR® automobiles. Upon completion of this program, the graduates will be qualified for entry into a MOPAR® dealership as a technician capable of analysis, problem solving, performing most common service operations and under supervision, more specialized or involved tasks with a dealership. Students will be required to complete out-of-class assignments in each course.

Program Requirements

Students enrolled in, or who choose to transfer to, the Automotive Technology with MOPAR® CAP program must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.50 throughout the length of their training. Students must also maintain a 90% or better attendance record. Failure to maintain these standards may result in the student’s inability to continue participating in the program. Those students who are no longer eligible to participate in the MOPAR® CAP Partnerships program may be allowed to continue fulfilling the requirements necessary to graduate from the Automotive Technology Diploma program.

MOPAR® CAP option

Provides students with an additional avenue for career placement with a MOPAR® dealer. This program trains the student to a level of proficiency that qualifies them for special placement within a MOPAR® automotive repair facility. Students of this program are trained on advanced troubleshooting and mechanical procedures that also allow them to take their skills and apply them to a non-MOPAR® dealer environment as well.
