The Automotive Service Technician (AST) Certificate is the basic program which qualifies students to work at entry-level jobs in many mechanics shops. The Automotive Technician (AT) Certificate includes the AST Certificate plus additional classes and is for students who want to become licensed in the State of California.
Students who hope to manage a shop, own their own automotive-related business or just want to continue on to a four-year school in their futures should consider the AS degree which includes the AT Certificate plus General Education. Students with the AS degree will also have demonstrated a broader educational basis and writing ability that can give them an advantage for promotional opportunities in the future.
