Snow College Automotive Technology department offers an Automotive Technology program that follows the eight (8) Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) areas. Students are encouraged to take the ASE certification tests when they complete an area. The areas of ASE Certification are as follows:
Students pay regular tuition plus the cost of books, tools, uniform shirts, and safety
equipment during their training. The purchased books, tools and equipment are the
personal property of the students.
Students have two options. They may obtain (1) a Certificate of Proficiency in any one or more of the above areas, (2) an Associate of Applied Science degree in Automotive Technology.
The Automotive Technology Department started at Sevier Valley Tech in 1961 and has provided trained entry-level technicians for over 50 years. Since May 1994 this program has met the requirements and received ASE Certification in all eight (8) automotive specialty areas from the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation, Inc. (NATEF). Curriculum, equipment, and instruction must be constantly updated and reviewed by the NATEF organization and an on-site visit is required every five years. ASE Certification has become a national industry standard and is used for working with the Utah Colleges of Applied Technologies, and the State Colleges and University’s to coordinate and articulate programs.
