Legislator Tom Muratore was recently invited to attend a special meeting at Suffolk County Community College’s Ammerman Campus in Selden to introduce the Audi officials to Suffolk’s Automotive Technology Program.
Suffolk County Community College offers an A.A.S. degree in Automotive Technology that is National Automotive Technician's Education Foundation (NATEF) certified. This training is designed to prepare students for careers as automotive technicians and professionals at service facilities. Audi is the latest luxury automotive brand to consider partnering with the college’s extensive training curriculum.
“Our automobiles are more technically advanced than ever and the need for highly skilled technicians continues to grow,” said President McKay. “Our students, as we continue to build our program, will be able to work in any dealership in the region. We will be the premier training facility in the tristate region.”
Legislator Muratore commented, “I’d like to thank President McKay for inviting me to this very informative meeting. The potential addition of Audi would be a huge boost to the college’s Automotive Technology Program. Suffolk Community College is one of the most cutting-edge, cost-effective education facilities in our county. Students of all ages are encouraged to take full advantage of what this valuable institution has to offer for career training and enhancement.”
