Automotive Technology – Evening (AT – EVE)

Take the wheel of your schedule, then take the wheel of your career.

Automotive Training Center’s Automotive Technology program is available in the evening for students who have a busy schedule during the day. Featuring a similar curriculum and training method as the daytime Automotive Technology training, you’ll learn the skills needed to succeed as an automotive technician during a class time and schedule that works best for you.


The evening Automotive Technology program at ATC features ASE-certified instructors teaching hands-on courses where you’ll gain shop experience through ATC’s specialized labs and modern facilities. One-on-one instruction gives evening Automotive Technology students at ATC the chance to learn by diagnosing, repairing, and servicing a variety of foreign and domestic vehicle makes and models.

This exposure to industry-standard tools and procedures through extensive education gives students the opportunity to learn and work toward developing the skill set of a professional technician.

Through our evening classes, students will gain the experience and education required to enter the workforce as a trained entry-level automotive technician. Graduates who receive an automotive diploma from ATC may go on to careers as an:

  • Automotive Technician

  • Parts Counterperson
  • Automotive Technical Instructor*
  • Field Service Representative*
  • Insurance Investigator
  • Manufacturer Representative*

*These positions may require several years of industry field experience


What are the differences between the Automotive Technology Day and AT-Eve programs? 

Aside from when classes are taught, the biggest difference between attending AT-Eve and AT-Day is the program length. Automotive Technology day students can expect to complete their courses in 64 weeks. Shorter sessions in the evening mean that students enrolled in our AT evening program should plan on training for 84 weeks.

While these two programs may be a difference of training in the day vs. night, they have a lot in common, from the topics taught, to the projects you’ll work on in the shop, to the careers you may be eligible for after successful program completion.

What are the benefits of attending AT-Eve vs Day? How do I know which is right for me?

For those who have life commitments during the day, whether that’s caring for a little one or running a small business, attending Automotive Technology classes in the evening can be a way to continue your routine while working toward earning an automotive education.

While the evening program length is longer than daytime training, by maintaining your existing source of income, you can keep up with monthly finances and potentially make your future career transition into automotive more seamless.
