Enrolling in SRJC's Automotive Technology Program can lead to rewarding employment at dealerships, smog stations, and repair facilities locally and across the country.

Today's Advanced Transportation and Logistics Technician - With the U.S. population highly dependent on the transportation equipment and as the transportation equipment becomes more complex, the need for trained technicians continues to grow. Today, newer vehicles have sophisticated diagnostic systems, and skilled technicians are required to make repairs. Trained technicians diagnose and repair malfunctions of internal combustion engines, electrical systems, accessories, transmissions, brakes, steering, air condition and perform tune-ups and wheel alignments. Advanced Transportation Technicians with state-of-the-art skills are in high demand.
