This course builds on the skills and knowledge introduced in Automotive Service I & II.

Building advanced automotive skills and knowledge in vehicle servicing, testing, repair, and

diagnosis of brakes, electrical systems, drivetrain, engine, HVAC and steering & suspension

systems, while emphasizing hands-on experience. As part of the NATEF accreditation, topics are

aligned to the Maintenance and Light Repair (MLR) requirements. English language arts and

mathematics are reinforced. Work-based learning strategies appropriate for this course include

apprenticeship, cooperative education, entrepreneurship, internship, and job shadowing. This

course helps prepare students for the Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certification in

Maintenance and Light Repair (MLR- G1). SkillsUSA competitive events, community service,

and leadership activities provide the opportunity to apply essential standards and workplace

readiness skills through authentic experiences.
