OTC Automotive Program
Receives Diagnostic Equipment

The Automotive Technology Program at Ogeechee Technical College was the recent recipient of an equipment grant from ATech Automotive Technology.  A variety of automotive diagnostic machines were donated to assist in the training of OTC students.  ATech Automotive Technology donated services and coordinated the grant of equipment through a cooperative effort with Ford Motor Company and B&B Electronics Manufacturing Company.  “This equipment allows us to train our students on the latest technology available right now,” stated Charles Case, Automotive Technology Instructor at OTC.  “Having well trained service technicians is essential to any automotive service company, and having access to these machines helps keep our program offerings on the cutting edge of the industry,” Case further explained.

The donated pieces of diagnostic equipment are already in use at Ogeechee Tech, and have added a new element to the level of training Automotive Technology students receive.  “We are always pleased to add new technology to our training capability,” commented OTC president, Dr. Dawn Cartee.  “The generosity of companies such as ATech, Ford and B&B allows us to better serve our students,” Dr. Cartee further commented.  “Our partnership with the business community is essential to our students’ success,” Dr. Cartee concluded.

Students in Automotive Technology get actual hands-on training experience at the college.  While many students are new to automotive repair work, others are experienced automotive technicians who are seeking new levels of expertise and certification.  “We have something to offer students with any level of experience,” explained Case.  “These new diagnostic machines allow us to take our training to the next level,” he further stated.
