Ford Maintenance and Light Repair Certification

The Ford Maintenance and Light Repair (MLR) training is tailored to support maintenance and light repair business growth, and quick lae technician staffing. Students are trained in the basics of electrical, steering and suspension, and braking systems by Ford STST-certified instructors. Upon successful completion, students will become Certified Ford Repairmen.

This hybrid training combines web-based training modules and three in-class instructional components: orientation/electrical, steering and suspension, and automotive braking systems. The orientation and electrical components are offered in the fall, and the remaining two workshops are offered in the spring.

Entrance requirements: Two years of experience as a professional auto mechanic and a valid driver's license; previous automotive services training is a plus.

Miscellaneous: Students are required to complete online training (per course area) and pass an exam before they can be admitted into the program.

** Registration deadline for the MLR program is a minimum of two weeks prior to the start of the course. **
