Automotive Technology

Keefe Regional Technical School’s Automotive Technology Program is certified in all eight ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) service areas and has received master status certification from the National Automotive Technician’s Education Foundation (NATEF).

Automotive Technology students in grades nine and ten develop skills in automotive repair and maintenance through training using engine parts and donated vehicles. After completing this training, instructors supervise students in the servicing of actual customer vehicles. Customers with vehicles that meet certain criteria for training purposes may request an appointment for service. Keefe Regional Technical School is an authorized inspection station under the new Massachusetts Enhanced Emission and Safety Program.

Keefe Regional Technical School offers our students the ability to work with the latest technology in the automotive service industry and has established educational partnerships with area dealerships for job shadowing, internships, and cooperative work for our students. This provides assurance that Keefe Regional Technical School graduates from the Automotive Technology Program will be employed as entry-level technicians and/or be prepared for training on the post-secondary level.
