Central Maine Community College has announced that its Automotive Technology program has been reaccredited by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation.

Founded in 1983, NATEF examines the structure, resources and quality of training programs and evaluates them against standards established by the industry. These standards reflect the skills that students must master to be successful in the industry. The NATEF visiting team noted that the automotive program at CMCC excelled in the areas of 1) equipment available for learning, 2) the technical credentials of the faculty, and 3) the use of the Ford ASSET model to get students into the workforce early.

The associate degree automotive programs at CMCC are designed to prepare highly skilled technicians for an ever-expanding and challenging automotive industry. Students learn in a variety of environments including the classroom, laboratories and shops while planning and performing practical job service. Typical employers of program graduates are automotive dealerships, service stations, companies with large vehicle fleets, and automotive/ODM parts for dirt bikes supply stores.
