    What to Expect When Taking an Online Course

    Last updated 2 years ago

    At Chattahoochee Technical College, we deliver instruction to our students through various methods, including online, hybrid, and web-enhanced courses. Except for one proctored event to be completed at an assigned date and time in person, online courses deliver all other instruction and content off campus. Hybrid classes have weekly meeting times but are generally conducted online. Our traditional classes are considered “web-enhanced,” being held in person at set times but with supplemental content and instruction available online.

    No matter what type of course you take, you should always be prepared to complete assignments on time. In order to succeed at an online course, you must also be self-motivated and able to work independently. It will be up to you to reach out to professors and classmates, and you must be able to communicate clearly in writing over email or online forums. Online learning takes time, and you need self-discipline to dedicate yourself to your education. Since you won’t have standard class periods, you may benefit from setting aside time each day exclusively for coursework and sticking to this schedule.

    On the Move: Is a Career in Engines and Electrical Systems Right for You?

    Last updated 2 years ago

    With millions of vehicles on American roadways today, trained automotive technicians are in high demand. If you consider yourself a amateur mechanic a motorcycle enthusiast, or even an alternative-fuel advocate, with the right education, you could make a career out of your automotive interests. Chattahoochee Technical College’s programs are designed to equip prospective automotive and motorcycle service technicians with the skills and know-how they need:

    Automotive Technology

    From the tires to the engine, every part of a vehicle should be familiar to an automotive technician. Beyond their mechanical workings, modern vehicles also have complex electronics systems and built-in computers, so today’s service technicians need a greater set of skills now more than ever. Our Automotive Technology program teaches students how to accurately diagnose problems, perform expert repairs, and keep vehicles running like new. Coursework includes such subjects as Automotive Engine Performance, Engine Repair, Electrical Systems, Brake Systems, Climate Control Systems, Suspension and Steering Systems, and Transmissions and Drivelines. Alternative Fuel Vehicles coursework also covers hybrid and electric cars.

    If you are a detail-oriented, mechanically inclined person with logical problem-solving skills, you may excel in the Automotive Technology program. Once you complete your hands-on training in real automotive labs, you will be prepared for the Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) certification exams. Our graduates are qualified to work as fleet mechanics, installers, parts specialists, and in many other automotive technician roles. You may find work at a large dealership, a small auto shop, or even a specialty repair shop that services certain types and parts of vehicles. The opportunities for a proficient automotive technician are nearly endless.

    Motorcycle Service Technology

    Motorcyclists across the U.S. rely on skilled motorcycle service technicians to keep their beloved bikes in top shape. A trained motorcycle service technician will know the ins and outs of engines, transmissions, suspensions, and more. Using this knowledge, technicians can expertly service all types of motorcycles to keep them roaring down the highways and across country roads. The Motorcycle Service Technology program prepares students to perform diagnostic, repair, and maintenance work on motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), and other smaller vehicles of various makes and models. Motorcycle Maintenance, Engines and Drivetrains, and Chassis and Suspension Systems are some of the subjects included in our coursework, as well as Introduction to Motorcycle Technology.

    As a student, you will gain in-depth knowledge of the fundamental principles of a motorcycle’s workings, including mechanical, electrical, and fuel systems. The ability to accurately diagnose and repair motorcycles’ major systems is paramount. Like our Automotive Technology students, Motorcycle Service Technology graduates are qualified to find careers in similar work environments. If attention to detail and mechanical inclination are among your skillset, consider work as a motorcycle service technician.
