• Auto Dismantling
    Engineering, Manufacturing, & Technology Path
    (* Certificate Program)
    Program Description
    The Auto Dismantling program represents an industry dedicated to the efficient removal and reuse of automotive parts, and the safe disposal of inoperable motor vehicles. The program is designed for students who enjoy hands-on learning while working with tools to disassemble automobiles into their usable parts and components. Students are taught about the automobile and how to disassemble these vehicles into usable parts and components.
    Inoperative motor vehicles are donated to the program and the hazardous and recyclable fluids such as gasoline, oil, freon, antifreeze, brake fluid, and transmission fluid are properly drained. Undamaged parts are then dismantled from the vehicle, cleaned, tested, and readied for reuse. The remaining vehicle hulk is then prepared for scrapping. Auto recycling has become a highly organized, efficient means of getting the most out of available parts. Forklift operation and welding are also covered within the program.
