Student Testimonial- Classroom Exp.
"Car Care Essentials was not just fun and educational, but it was an opportunity to find many possible careers I would enjoy. Not many students get to say they have a shop at their school with welders, four lifts, and the top of the line tools and equipment. In this class I learned how to fix everyday problems that car owners run into. It helped me save plenty of money by doing it myself rather than getting overcharged at a shop. We also went well in depth with the cooling system, oil and lubrication, brakes and even buying and selling used cars. This class is a must take if you have any interest in automobiles"
