The Jefferson College Automotive Technology program has received full reaccreditation by the Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) Education Foundation through 2027.
The program underwent a rigorous evaluation using nationally accepted standards of excellence in instruction, facilities, and equipment. ASE program accreditation provides external verification of the quality of the Jefferson College Automotive Technology program.
According to ASE Education Foundation President Michael Coley, “We commend Jefferson College and your staff for maintaining program standards and continuing to meet industry requirements. The explosion in automotive technology makes your high-quality automotive training program more valuable than ever.”
Led by instructors Gerard Uhls and Bradley Berrey, the Jefferson College Automotive Technology program is a popular training option, allowing students to pursue an Associate of Applied Science degree or a Career and Technical certificate. Graduates are employed at some of the most respected and well-known repair facilities throughout the region.
“Jefferson College has a long history of high quality instruction and ASE certification keeps this program on a national level,” said Uhls. “We are very thankful for all the support we received from College personnel and the automotive professionals that made this happen. Students will be assured of continued quality education and shop owners will be assured of getting quality job applicants.”
The ASE accreditation process began with an extensive self-evaluation performed by instructors, College administrators, and advisory committee members who compared the program to national standards and had the opportunity to make improvements before submitting evaluation documents for review.
