You must get instructor’s approval on the item you’re repairing at least 2 weeks before the course begins. This course is designed for beginners.
Be energy-informed as you plan to update your home to 21st Century performance.

Topics covered will be retrofit method (insulating to the inside or outside), the importance of proper air-sealing and ventilation, material selection, and the economic and environmental considerations of each approach. Attendees will be encouraged to do “homework” that involves their unique situations and bring it back to class for discussion.
This 10-week course will give you a basic understanding of your automobile as well as provide a launching pad to careers or further study at a community college level. We will cover the following topics, aligned to ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) standards: Foundation and Safety, Basic Engine and Auto Transmission Fundamentals/Service, Steering System and Suspension, and Brakes. By completion of class, the student will have a solid understanding of lubrication, fluids, tires, vehicle maintenance, and how systems work. Safety is covered in the first two sessions and students will be assigned online safety modules to study at home. This is not a bring-in-your-own-vehicle repair class; applied learning will occur in the shop on a demo vehicle.
