Prepare to move ahead.

Jump-start your opportunities with high-tech skills.

The vehicles we drive are becoming more sophisticated every day. Manufacturers are developing new technologies and increasingly complex vehicle systems to reduce environmental impact, and improve safety and operating efficiency. 

Servicing these advanced vehicles demands expert technicians who understand the new systems and technologies and are skilled in using the latest tools for diagnosis and repair. 

With many experienced service technicians retiring, and more cars and trucks on the road every year, the demand for automotive and diesel services is high. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, those who have advanced training and skills will have better pay and many more opportunities for employment and advancement.

Available Degrees

Baker College prepares you for a career in vehicle service technology through an intensive training program that includes classroom instruction and hands-on training in using the newest diagnostic and repair technologies. 

To ensure that our program meets today’s demands, we have an Advisory Board made up of the dealerships and garages that employ service technicians. We use their input and knowledge to design courses that teach you everything you need to know about modern auto technology. What you learn in the classroom is enriched with hands-on experience in state-of-the-art labs, using diagnostic and repair tools and techniques—the same tools and techniques that the most sophisticated vehicle service facilities in the nation are using right now.
