Paul Rossiter - Automotive Technology
About the Students
So what does the typical automotive student look like?
There is no typical automotive student. Our students range in age from 17 to 65 years old. We usually have a maximum of 24 students per class and our program is ethnically diverse. Automotive experience is not a requirement to get into the program. We have students coming in with absolutely no experience at all, to those that are already working in the automotive field.
Our students are separated into groups, usually two or three to a group. Our more experienced students are usually more than happy to help the less experience students gain the confidence and skill necessary to be successful.
In the classroom it is necessary to be punctual, pay attention and do the assigned work. Students are expected to keep up with the assignments and to put forth the study time and effort necessary to pass the major tests.
There are "Four Secrets of Success"
Automotive Technology Program:
- Be where you are supposed to be, when you are supposed to be there.
- Do what you're suppose to do, when you're supposed to do it.
- Study hard enough to learn the material necessary to pass the tests.
- Obey the rules and regulations of the College and of the Program.
