"In August of this year, I decided to attend OCtech and enroll in the Automotive Technology program. My son is in college and both my wife and daughter have their Master’s Degree. It is my turn now. I always said if I ever had any free time, I wanted to go back to college. At 58, I am one of the oldest in my class and I hope I can be an inspiration for young people."

The importance of professional automobile repair in today's mobile society cannot be overstated. Because vehicles have skyrocketed in cost and are kept in service longer, there is a shortage of trained, knowledgeable technicians. Skilled technicians are needed to perform preventive maintenance, repairs and adjustments. Your decision to obtain either a certificate or Associate Degree in Automotive Technology will provide you with increased career opportunity and higher income.
The U.S, Department of Labor data shows the median annual wage of automotive service technicians and mechanics was $35,790 in May 2010 and the top 10 percent earned more than $59,590.
If you’re ready to explore your possibilities for the future, choose OCtech’s Associate in Applied Science Automotive Technology degree.
The OCtech Automotive Technology Program is accredited by the National Automotive Technician Education Foundation.
