Pre/Co-requisite(s): AUTT 1010, (AUTT 1020 OR AUTT 1022), AUTT 1030
This elective course will provide the student with an opportunity to relate what they have learned in the classroom and lab to a real world situation either at a place of business or at a technical college. Under the supervision of an experienced ASE certified automotive technician or their instructor, the student will obtain a greater admiration and appreciation of the material learned in the classroom and lab. The internship will also serve the function of bridging the lessons learned at school and applying that to real world situations. The suitability of the work setting will be determined by having a conference with the automotive instructor and the prospective employer. The student will have the option to take the internship program at an approved place of employment or at the college if he or she wishes and perform all the live work duties of the service writer, parts department personnel, and technician to include writing the repair order, ordering parts (if applicable) and repairing the vehicle. Student must work a minimum of 150 hours during the semester to receive credit for this course.
