This class provides the student with the basic knowledge and understanding of the automotive field and career opportunities. We cover safety in the shop, theory of operation, construction, maintenance procedures, and repair of automotive components. The class is divided into two parts: (1) 80% classroom lecture and demonstrations and (2) 20% practical shop experience. Students will be assigned safety glasses to be worn at all times in the shop. Students are encouraged to participate in SkillsUSA.
