3. Are There Instructors Available?

For more than 25 years, ATC has offered students experienced and enthusiastic instructors, and this hasn’t changed with our online programs, which are instructor-led. If you are working at your own pace, our online programs also offers extensive email support so that if you need advice about something you’re working on, our experienced and friendly instructors will answer you. 

4. Do You Have Any Advice for Learning at Home?

We acknowledge that it may be a little challenging to work and study from home, especially in these uncertain times. But we believe it’s possible and we are ready to support you as you pursue a career as an auto mechanic. Here are a few things that will help you prepare to learn at home:

  • Try to set up a routine: it might be helpful to treat the class as you would if you were going to the shop. Set a time and days you want to show up and try to stick to your schedule as best you can.
  • Ask questions: if you’re not sure about something, just ask! It can be really satisfying to figure things out yourself, but our instructors are here to help you learn.
  • Set goals: You can keep your long-term goal in mind as you study, but you can also set daily or weekly goals to help motivate yourself.
