Hello all and welcome back to PCC for another great year. The Automotive Department is currently putting together a list of vehicles for students to work on during their live classes. I will be post a list below of the classes that will be going this term. I will also post a customer information sheet that explains the program a little more. If you have any questions please call me @ Brent Fuller 503-977-4901 if you decide to email me please include vehicle make, model , year and problem you are having. Thank you and have a good year.

That repair is dependant on what classes are in session, and instructor approval. The Automotive Service Technology Department does not do any major mechanical repairs, such as engine rebuilds or project cars. The reason this department takes in ‘Soutside’? work is to provide real service and repair situations for our students to practice recently learned skills under instructor supervision. The vehicle owner’"s needs are secondary to the above statement. Advantage To You:No labor charge for the auto repair being performed. You must pay our cost for parts that the Automotive Service department orders along with a 10% charge up to $15.00. Disadvantage To You: TIME—— We do not rush students through their work. We cannot guarantee a finish date. Most jobs will take at least 2 days and could take up to a couple of weeks. You must have alternate transportation.Vehicles more than ten years old will need to be approved by instructor.Some instructors will not work on certain makes and styles of cars.Only one or two jobs per vehicle per visit⬦⬦. no project cars. We don’t do all types of service and repairsIf problems arise after repairs are made, they will need to be addressed by automotive service technology personnel only. Customers may have to wait until another class is offered which deals with that type of problem.The instructor in charge of the class retains the right to deny repair services for vehicles that do not meet program guidelines and to deny services to individuals who fail to abide by the provisions of the automotive service technology program. Any other questions you might have should be directed to Brent Fuller in the Service Department of the Automotive Service Technology Program located in the A.M building, or at 503-977-4901
