WHAT STARTS YOUR ENGINE?

If you love cars or boats and want to take the wheel of your future today, look no further than ATC! Our auto career training school offers programs across five fields of study* at two campus locations in southeastern PA. Check out what enrolling in an ATC education has in store:

LEARN FROM INDUSTRY EXPERTS

Breaking out in today’s automotive industry demands mechanical know-how and experience. Who better to learn from than professionals who’ve already earned their stripes out in the field?

ATC students learn the basics (and the not-so-basics!) of vehicle diagnosis, repair, and optimization from instructors certified by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE), I-CAR, the American Boat and Yacht Council, and MOPAR CAP to name a few.

MORE THAN TALKING SHOP

ATC students don’t just hit the books in the classroom; 50% of their time is committed to exercising that education in a modern shop setting, complete with the tools, equipment, and technology used by today’s shops and service centers.

They say experience is the best teacher. Whether that’s transforming lessons into engine rumblings or troubleshooting an issue under the hood as a group, hands-on training helps students solidify their understanding and develop an actionable, real-world skill set.
