Auto Repair Technician


Today’s automobile is designed and engineered at a higher level of technology than ever before. This produces a high demand for trained repair technicians who can meet the increased technical challenges and demonstrate advanced knowledge–particularly in the electrical and electronics areas. As a well-trained technician with current skills, you can expect rapid employment and a steady rising income. In addition, this program includes preparation for the ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) certification.

Admission Requirements

Entry into this program requires completion of an admissions application.

Auto Repair Shop

Lake Washington Institute of Technology's Auto Repair Shop is located on the main Kirkland campus. It does not try to compete with commercial repair shops, therefore, only work needed for student training is accepted. Vehicles less than 12 years old will meet the requirements of training for the current automotive job market.  


Gainful Employment

Regulations published in the Federal Register on October 29, 2010 require institutions to report aggregated information for students who enrolled in Title IV eligible educational programs that lead to gainful employment in a recognized occupation (GE programs). These regulations include the disclosure of tuition and fees, books and supplies, on-campus room and board, number of students completing the program, median student loan debt, and job placement rates which must be available to all prospective students. Below lists disclosures for Title IV eligible certificates offered within this academic program.
