The courses use the I-Car curriculum and students have the opportunity to earn I-Car course credit. The program is certified in all four areas by NATEF (National Automotive Technicians Educations Foundation, Inc.). This is the highest level of certification that NATEF awards. NATEF was founded in 1983 as an independent, non- profit organization with a single mission: to evaluate technician training programs against standards developed by the auto- motive industry and recommend qualifying programs for certification (accreditation) by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE).
