Advanced training

and education

can be obtained from technical schools, community colleges and universities. Macomb Community College, Ferris State University and University of Northwestern Ohio (Lima, OH) are examples of quality programs for TEC students to consider. Also available are apprenticeship programs: GM – ASEP (Automotive Service Education Program) offered at Macomb Community College; and Ford – ASSET (Automotive Student Specialty Education Training) offered at Henry Ford Community College. It is strongly recommended that TEC students achieve a minimum of an Associate’s degree in their occupational area.
