Hunain Khan Automotive Service Technician

The length of the program was a key for me, no time wasting. You finish fast, you’re out faster in the trade. I f you have a little knowledge in mechanics, you’ll triple that knowledge in the time you spend there. If you don’t know anything, you’ll still learn what you need to get started. Spending time with instructors that have knowledge and experience makes you get an edge; they always had an answer for the questions I asked, and they backed it up with theory. I like the place, it’s organized, the equipment is sufficient and up-to-date, they have flexible hours and your able to work while doing your schooling. After graduating, I got to work in a garage that mostly handles trucks and when they saw what I could do and what I learned at the school, they knew I was able to do the work. All this because of the way I handled the tools, and the experience I got from all the hands-on knowledge I got at ATC.
