REYNOLDSVILLE – The Automotive Technology program at Jeff Tech in Reynoldsville has received reaccreditation by NATEF and The National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). Jeff Tech’s Automotive Technology program has been reaccredited in Maintenance and Light Repair.
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, former NATEF chair. “Because this program increases cooperation between local education and industry leaders, it gives added assurance that Jeff Tech’s graduates will be employable entry-level technicians.
“As a result of the quality education provided by Jeff Tech, the motoring public will benefit since better repair technicians will join the work force.”
Upon completion of the evaluation, NATEF recommended that Jeff Tech be reaccredited 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.
Andy Watt, Jeff Tech’s Automotive Technology instructor, 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.”
