Mid-Coast automotive programs receive national accreditation
Rockland — The Automotive Technology and Automotive Collision Repair training programs at Mid-Coast School of Technology in Rockland have received accreditation by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation and The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence.
To achieve this recognition, the school’s automotive technology and collision repair training programs underwent rigorous evaluation by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation. Nationally accepted standards of excellence in areas such as instruction, facilities, and equipment were used.
“This is great news for automotive-minded young people and their parents,” said Donald Seyfer, NATEF Chairman in a news release. “Because this program increases cooperation between local education and industry leaders, it gives added assurance that MCST’s graduates will be employable entry-level technicians. As a result of the quality education provided by MCST, the motoring public will benefit since better repair technicians will join the work force.”
Upon completion of the evaluation, NATEF recommended that MCST’s programs be accredited by The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence. ASE is a national non-profit organization which tests and certifies repair technicians, in addition to accrediting automotive training programs.
