LSC-Conroe Center Automotive Technology Department

students working on a carAutomotive service technicians inspect, maintain and repair automobiles and light trucks that run on gasoline, diesel, electricity or alternative fuels such as ethanol.

Today, integrated electronic systems and complex computers regulate vehicles and their performance while on the road. Technicians must have an increasingly broad knowledge of how vehicles' complex components work and interact. They also must be able to work with electronic diagnostic equipment and digital manuals and reference materials.

The academic requirements of the 19-credit hour program provide a foundation for continued studies should the student decide to further pursue his or her education or training.  All courses offered through the program are held at Lone Star College-Conroe Center and will transfer to Lone Star College-North Harris, where the student may pursue an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Automotive Technology.

The GST Certificate program has been reviewed by the National Automotive Technician Education Foundation and has full Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certification.  The student is prepared and is encouraged to take the appropriate ASE certification exams once all academic and workforce experience requirements have been met.
