The automobile has been a part of every family for over 60 years now, and in order to satisfy Americans’ love for the car, many new job opportunities are being created.  Also, the requirements for becoming an automobile technician have changed over the years.  These changes have created a shortage for technicians that can analyze, diagnose, and perform repairs to electronic computer controlled systems.  At Central Georgia Technical College, we provide students with the training and education to become a successful automotive technician.  If you are ready to develop the skills necessary to work on today’s cars, Central Georgia Technical College is the place for your training and education.
