What Can I Accomplish

The work of automotive service technicians has evolved from mechanical repair to a high technology job. A trained technician with the right skills will always be in demand and on track for a rewarding career in this fast-paced industry. Automotive technicians use their high-tech skills to inspect, maintain and repair automobiles and light trucks. Technicians generally work indoors in well-ventilated and -lighted repair and maintenance shops, auto dealers and retailers of auto parts, accessories and supplies.

Brazosport College’s classes offer hands-on, real-world, automotive training — taught by experienced faculty. Because of the complexity of new vehicles, a growing number of employers require completion of postsecondary training, like you’ll find at BC.

Where Can I Go 

Automotive technicians work with a variety of tools. They also must understand the integrated electronic systems and complex computers that run vehicles. Businesses in Brazoria County need trained technicians that will keep pace with this new technology.
