Farmville-Central auto repair program gets high marks

Posted: Updated:
The automotive training program at Farmville Central High School has received accreditation by NATEF and The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE).  Farmville Central High School’s automotive program has been accredited in the following areas:  Maintenance and light repair (MLR).  The instructors are certified in Brakes, Electrical, MLR, Steering and Suspension.

To achieve this coveted recognition, the school’s automotive training program underwent rigorous evaluation by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF).  Nationally accepted standards of excellence in areas such as instruction, facilities, and equipment were used.

“This is great news for automotive-minded young people and their parents,” said Donald Seyfer, NATEF Chair.  “Because this program increases cooperation between local education and industry leaders, it gives added assurance that Farmville Central High School’s graduates will be employable entry-level technicians.  As a result of the quality education provided by Farmville Central High School, the motoring public will benefit since better repair technicians will join the work force.”

Upon completion of the evaluation, NATEF recommended that Farmville Central High School be accredited by The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE).  ASE is a national non-profit organization which tests and certifies repair technicians, in addition to accrediting automotive training programs.

Mike Olmsted added, “During the past few months, we have worked closely with NATEF to make certain that our program would meet strict industry standards, and now we are delighted to join the ranks of the ASE accredited training programs.  Students will be assured of a quality education, and shop owners will be assured of getting quality job applicants.”
