Chances are you've always been good at repairing cars and trucks. You know you have what it takes to become a great technician. Maybe now it's time to put what you know to the test and get the credentials you need to become a professional automotive service technician.
From automotive service technician to service manager to maybe owning your own repair shop one day, it all begins with the academic and career training available to you through the Automotive Technologies Program at Lansing Community College.
LCC's Automotive Technologies Program is one of the most respected training and learning experiences of its kind in the region.

Why? Because employers know that LCC program graduates and certificate completion students are trained professionals ready for the demands of the real world. After successfully completing our program, you will be ready to hit the ground running. Job satisfaction is high and the pay scale is equally attractive. Starting pay ranges from $30,000 to nearly $80,000 annually in some areas.
The Automotive Technologies Program offers a variety of certificate and associate degree programs designed to provide you with the latest in practical, hands-on coursework based on current industry standards. What you learn in the classroom and auto labs is what you'll use in the real world. Students in our programs work on "live" jobs--cars and trucks that need to be repaired. Our faculty members have worked in repair shops and bring a real-world relevance to your learning experience.
