Why choose Ranken for technician training?

Starting in their second semester at Ranken, students who are accepted into the Professional Technician program will alternate between eight-week sections of automotive technician training at Ranken and eight-week paid internship blocks at their sponsoring employer. This format allows students to get real-world experience in addition to their auto mechanic school degree at Ranken.

Not every auto mechanic school out there offers experience like we do, or the chance to learn by doing! Auto technician school students who complete internships in this format typically go on to accept full-time positions at their work site after graduation.

Entry into this program is open to students enrolled in the first semester of Ranken’s Automotive Maintenance Technology program, and is based on student applications and available openings with participating employers.

If you are interested in auto technician school and have questions about our Professional Technician Program, contact Admissions using the form on the right.

If you are a Ranken student in your first semester of auto mechanic school, talk to your instructors for information on available positions.
