Overview

The goal of the Motorcycle Technician program is to prepare students to work in the increasingly sophisticated and complex field of motorcycle technology through a combination of classroom instruction and hands-on skill development. Technicians must be able to work with electronic diagnostic equipment, read and understand technical manuals, investigate to find the cause of a problem, and connect effectively with the customer. Students will use a variety of tools, including both manual and high tech equipment to assess, identify problems, and perform repairs.
