Auto Basics & Auto Tech

David Thurman
I have always had a passion for automobiles, the industry, hobbies, and sports surrounding them. I have worked in the automotive industry for well over 20 years in almost every capacity of the repair segment of the industry. From porter, tech, parts, foreman, service writer, and shop manager. While working my way up from the bottom to the top I noticed that there was a great demand for skilled techs to replace the aging workforce of the modern day shops. Seeing that need I felt it was a responsibility to encourage, and teach the tech of the future. This is my fifth year as the Auto tech teacher here at Reagan ECHS.
Auto Basics - introduction to the automobile, the industry, safety, and tools.
Auto Tech - a closer look at the automobile, its systems, and employ-ability and soft skills.
Auto Tech II is complex repairs, complex diagnosis, and furthering of employability and earning of industry certificates.
