Related Technical Instruction

The Related Technical Instruction (RTI) that accompanies on-the-job training in these apprenticeship programs are the same classes that make up the certificate programs in Automotive and Diesel Technologies. These classes also represent the core of the associate degree programs for these occupations. Apprentices and other students seeking the certificates are encouraged to finish the degree by completing the General Education Requirements (approximately 12-15 credits), all of which are offered via distance delivered education.

The RTI listed below is presented in a linear order, although a few classes are prerequisites for others, they do not necessarily need to be taken in the order shown. Please contact Susan Moran, Student Success Coach, at (907) 786-6475 for more information.
