Automotive technology has evolved into a high tech career. Becoming an automotive technician now requires advanced training and a college degree.

Our goal is for you to have the technical and professional skillsets you need to progress. NOVA’s Automotive, Diesel, Collision Repair and Welding certificates and degrees provide you with the knowledge necessary to start and continue your career. Process, procedure, diagnosis, repair and problem solving are all key elements we focus on. Employers are looking for students like you to grow with their businesses. Some of you may even choose to become a business owner yourself.


Due to the rigor of instruction, our inventory of modern vehicles, and insurance concerns, we do not take on outside customer work.
