The Automotive Technology program at Somerville High School is a NATEF (National Automotive Technical Education Foundation) certified program in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. This means students are on track for ASE certification in this field. This nationally recognized credential is an open door for worldwide employment in the automotive industry. Experienced graduates are sought-after technicians who are encouraged to continue both certification and training in a post-secondary institution with a major manufacturer such as: BMW, Ford, Chrysler, or GM. The training on the secondary level is intensive. Strong mathematical and computer skills are a necessity.
