The automotive service and repair industry has gone through tremendous changes in the last decade. Working on today’s cars requires a deeper understanding of the technology that goes into the modern, more sophisticated automobile. This increased sophistication means schools need to stay current to properly educate students to meet industry standards. That is why accreditation for automotive programs is so important.
To help educators recruit, mentor, and train tomorrow’s technicians; the National Automotive Technician’s Education Foundation (NATEF) offers accreditation for automotive technician training programs. By utilizing standards established by industry, NATEF examines the structure, resources and quality of training programs with the goal to improve the quality of training offered at secondary and post-secondary, public and proprietary schools.
