Description: This second-year internship provides an opportunity for supervised, work-based training experience in an automotive repair facility or specialty business. Independent work in one or more of the ASE/NATEF automotive specialty areas is an important component of this internship. The specialty areas of focus will be determined by the student, the internship employer, and the Internship Coordinator, based on each student’s interests, aptitudes, and goals. The internship experience emphasizes the roles and responsibilities of an automotive technician or specialist. Safe, ethical shop policies and procedures are mandatory. Students are responsible for securing their own internship site. A list of potential approved types of internship sites is available through the Automotive Technology Department Head. Each internship site and position must receive prior approval from the Automotive Technology Department Head before the start of the semester. Basic hand tools and a tool-storage box may be required by the employer for participation in an internship. Students should work a minimum of 20 hours/week, for a total of at least 120 hours within the semester. Students must also attend the scheduled meetings with the faculty coordinator. Classroom-meeting requirements include an internship-orientation meeting and a session of ASE Student Certification testing. The faculty coordinator will visit the internship site during the internship to assess both the student and the site.
