About the Associate of Applied Science - Automotive Technology

The Automotive Technology degree program is designed for individuals preparing for positions utilizing a combination of automotive technology and business management skills including service managers, insurance adjusters, and small business owners. This degree program will prepare students for the National Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certification examinations to become ASE Certified Automobile Technicians. ASE certification requires hands-on working experience as well as completion of written examinations. Two years of post high school educational training, such as that offered in this automotive degree program at Yavapai College, may be substituted for up to one year of the hands-on work experience requirement of the ASE certification.
