Automotive Technician Diploma

1355 W Main St Anoka, Minnesota

About the program

The Anoka Technical College Automotive Technician program offers two awards: an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree and a diploma. Both programs include technical and general education components.

Automotive Technician graduates work in a variety of settings:

  • New or used car dealerships
  • Government or private fleets
  • National auto service chains
  • Local auto service shops
  • Owner operated repair shops

The Anoka Technical College Automotive Technician diploma is a 60-credit program that prepares graduates for an entry-level career in the automotive service industry. Most entry-level automotive technicians start as tire or lube technicians. Within a few months they will be performing many routine service tasks and perform simple repairs. It usually takes two to five years of on-the-job training to become a journey-level technician. This means that the technician is skilled enough to perform difficult repairs. However, graduates of a college-level training program are often able to advance to that level in a shorter period of time.
