The Lawson State Automotive Technology program is a world class training program with the ultimate goal of training and placing certified technicians in their new careers. The program streamlines the path to becoming a certified service technician. Students alternate between formal classroom training and hands-on work experience. Instructors are factory trained and in touch with the latest automotive technology trends. Students learn how to identify, analyze and solve problems as theory and practical application come together with students working on vehicles in our shops. We offer six different programs to meet students’ needs; Auto Body Repair, Auto Mechanics, Medium/Heavy Truck, and four auto mechanics programs sponsored by manufacturers - Ford ASSET, GM ASEP, Mercedes Tech and Toyota T-TEN.
