What are some skills that you’ve gained in Automotive Technologies?
I have been able to make significant progress on my motor vehicle. As issues arise, I can rectify them and keep my vehicle running for a longer amount of time. I am also able to assist people around me that are close by with their vehicles.
Do you have a favorite memory, lesson, or class project from this CTE course?
Yes, we did steering and suspension as a unit. Once we completed the unit, I rebuilt the steering and suspension on my personal car. It was a very big project but once completed, my classmates and I were very proud.
Would you recommend Automotive Technologies to your peers?
Yes. The skills I have learned will help me for my lifetime. Even if people aren't super involved and interested, they can certainly obtain a substantial amount of skills even at a basic level.
