    Program Description

    Our partnership with the Ford Motor Company and their dealerships prepares you to step into a career as a highly qualified and prepared entry-level technician after you graduate. The Ford Automotive Student Service Educational Training program incorporates the most advanced automotive technical training with a strong academic foundation of math, reading, electronics, analytical, and technical skills.

    The ASSET program teaches on Ford Motor Company products exclusively as they provide us with current vehicles, components, state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and instructional materials for a true hands-on experience. You are required to secure a sponsorship in a Ford or Lincoln dealership during the program to receive on-the-job training. This will provide you with the opportunity to apply what you are learning in the classroom to a training-related employment work experience.

    You will be successful in our Ford ASSET program if you:

    • have high mechanical ability and basic math skills
    • have good communication skills (must be able to read, understand and follow written directions; must be able to read manuals and computer-generated instructions; and must be able to express oneself clearly verbally)
    • are computer efficient and detail-oriented
    • are a “mind-on” and a “hands-on” person
    • have the ability or willingness to work on a team
    • are a sequential and analytical thinker
