    Automotive Technology at WST is a challenging program and is nationally certified and accredited by NATEF (National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation). It is recognized as "one of the finest high school programs in the country". It is a two-year training program where students learn in the classroom and then work ‘hands-on’ in a well-equipped, fully functional service and repair facility. Students usually perform over 300 "live" repair orders annually on a huge variety of vehicles.

    If you love 'hands-on' work, have a true passion for cars, are seriously considering making a career in the automotive service and repair industry, AND you would describe yourself as possessing the following traits:
    - highly motivated and dedicated to personal success
    - personally responsible for your decisions, actions and learning
    - hard working, self-starter
    - willing and eager to listen and learn
    - has a positive, can-do and respectful attitude
    - has the highest standards of integrity
    - takes pride in personal appearance and hygiene
    - willing and able to stay focused and on task
    - always comes to class prepared, on time and ready to go
    - gives 100% effort consistently

    Then let me WELCOME you to Automotive Technology. It will be here that you will enter into and learn ‘real world’ professionalism. This program is where you will build a solid foundation for your future automotive career.

    My job is two-fold. One: To prepare you for immediate employment upon completion of this program into the automotive industry. Or two: If you plan to continue your education, I will help you secure a guaranteed ‘seat’ and start date for an advanced automotive school either 'locally' or out-of-state.

    I take my 'jobs' very seriously and will provide you with everything you will need to succeed. YOU on the other hand, will provide the following: the ‘drive’, willingness to learn, give 100% effort, personal accountability and responsibility, self-motivation and a positive attitude. If you provide these 'things', I can guaranty you will gain knowledge, acquire many new skills, and you will have FUN. The choice is yours.
