Why Pickens Tech

AUTOMOTIVE TECHNOLOGY


The Automotive Technology Program provides students with the needed skills and attitudes for successful entry into an automotive servicing career.

The Automotive Technology Program prepares students to enter the career field. This is a college level program that is NATEF certified, just like the expensive private colleges. But unlike the private colleges, you only pay for 15 more community college credits at CCA you earn your Associates degree of Applied Science.

We not only teach you how to fix a car, but also how to go out and get a job after completing school. The shop has all of the latest automotive equipment so you are not learning on outdated tools. The class provides experience in up to five specialty areas as well as preparation for ASE testing and certification.

Instructor Rolf Werner

YEARS TEACHING: 4

YEARS IN INDUSTRY: 43

INDUSTRY BACKGROUND:
Graduated from Denver Automotive and Diesel College, Graduated from Volkswagen/Audi factory school in L.A. Calif.. Worked at Dealers for 15 years, started as a certified broom technician, then a line technician, then Shop Foreman, to Service Adviser and finally to Service Manager. After opening my own shop 20 years ago, I decided to get involved with the Automotive Service Association (ASA).
I served on the Colorado board for 10 years and became state Director. I then got involved at a national level and served on the national board for 8 years and became national director of A.S.A. This is the highest office you can hold in my industry. I now feel I am giving back by training the next generation of technicians.

Instructor Ed Martin

YEARS TEACHING: 4

YEARS IN INDUSTRY: 30

INDUSTRY BACKGROUND:
Most of my experience was acquired in Ford dealerships, but I have experience in independent shops as well. I have also been a shop owner which included everything from pushing brooms to paying bills and everything between.

TEACHING BACKGROUND:
I never really chose to teach, teaching chose me, that is to say that for some reason I had the ability to explain things to my fellow technicians in a way that it made sense to them. When management discovered this ability, they embraced it in a more formal way by asking me to be an AYES Mentor. My job was to teach high school students what I did to earn a salary, and see if that type of work appealed to them. I usually had them for two summer internships, at the end of which they had to make a decision whether or not to continue in their training. It was very rewarding to see the impact I was having on their lives, which directed me to seek teaching as a full time career. I have not regretted it for a minute, I love doing what I do.

INDUSTRY CERTIFICATIONS AND/OR DEGREES:
I am an ASE Master Technician with a Light Duty Diesel Certification. I have also achieved Senior Master Technician with Ford Motor Company. I am a member of IATN which stands for International Automotive Technicians Network.
