Automotive Technology

Clark College has two automotive program offerings:

  • Toyota T-TEN
  • HiTECC (Dealer Ready)

Toyota T-TEN

Clark College is an award-winning Toyota Technical Education Network (T-TEN) training center. Our T-TEN program requires a Toyota Dealer sponsorship prior to admission. Entry into the program is yearly, beginning summer term; the format is a two-year program of a term of instruction on campus followed by a term of on-the-job learning. This means that for the two years that they are in the program, students alternate one term of full-time classroom and lab practice with one term as a full-time dealership apprentice.

HiTECC (Dealer Ready)

The Hannah initiative for Technician Education with Clark College, or HiTECC automotive program prepares students for maintenance and repair employment opportunities in automotive dealerships nationwide. This program provides a broad overview of technology used in modern vehicles. The program structure is patterned after the successful Toyota program and will require a dealership sponsor prior to entry. Students will participate in a cooperative work experience at a dealership while attending school.

For all programs, students must complete all Major Area Requirements with a minimum grade of "C" or better in order to successfully complete the program and earn the award.

Refer to the Degree & Certificate Requirements Section in the Clark College Catalog to identify the courses needed to satisfy the General Education Requirements.
