CTE Automotive Technology MLR (Maintenance & Light Repair)

  • Automotive MLR 1A (Maintenance & Light Repair) 04020A
    This course provides students with a review of vehicle systems and basic maintenance, with a greater in-depth concentration on the areas of engine construction and related systems. Beginning with hands-on experience using a small engine, the student will receive a foundation for practical math and science applications in relationship to automobile engines and vehicle systems. These skill sets are transferred to automotive engine construction and principles. From this foundation, students will build knowledge of basic maintenance applied to the vehicle, including electrical, engine performance and brakes. Students will advance their understanding of fundamental systems through troubleshooting and problem solving. This course will start students in the NATEF (National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation) certificate program for Maintenance and Light Repair (MLR}, in the areas of engine, electrical, engine performance and brakes. If a student desires to continue in the Automotive Technology program to further training and prepare for a career in the automotive or engineering related fields, a two-period automotive technology advance course is available with ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) and state certifications. **Pathway: Engineering/Manufacturing & Industrial Technology.
    COURSE NOTE: This state and NATEF-approved program is taught by an ASE Certified Instructor.

    Completion of 04020A/B - Automotive MLR 1 will fulfill 1.0 fourth-year credit Math or 1.0 credit Visual, Performing & Applied Arts, but not both, to meet graduation requirements.
