Environmental testing is defined as the controlled removal of pollutants from a product, typically water or air. In the testing of auto products, the process also determines whether or not the product’s overall quality meets or exceeds OEM or after-market safety standards. Auto Technology continually seeks to provide customers with the highest quality products in the testing arena while meeting all regulatory requirements. Our testing facilities are located throughout the United States and are constantly upgrading and adding new state-of-the-art equipment to our fleet.

Auto dealerships can offer competitive wages and benefits, but for automotive technicians who wish to run their own business they must have a strong sales and marketing position. Sales and marketing positions are extremely in-demand throughout the automotive industry due to the ongoing recession, and the need for qualified technicians to support these customers. Automotive technicians who want to start their own business but lack a formal education may choose to enroll in a general mechanic training program. A general mechanic training program will teach automotive technicians the skills needed to properly diagnose, repair, and maintain a variety of different automotive systems.
