The Transmission certificate program is designed to provide the student with skills necessary to seek entry-level employment at a transmission repair facility.

This program does not include all of the high-tech courses necessary for today’s master technician.

Instruction includes electricity and electronics for electrical applications to the transmission, complete brake system servicing, use of lathes for disc and drum-machining, asbestos safety control, transmission removal, overhaul and replacement, clutch replacement, universal joints, driveshafts, differential diagnosis and repair, and torque converter clutch systems.
