The automotive technology program at West Mesa High has been accredited by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation and the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence.

The accreditation is for general service technician, which includes services in eight areas.

The program increases cooperation between local education and industry leaders, assuring that West Mesa’s graduates will be employable entry-level technicians.

“During the past few months, we have worked closely with NATEF to make certain that our program would meet strict industry standards, and now we are delighted to join the ranks of the ASE accredited training program," said West Mesa automotive teacher Scott McLeod, "Students will be assured of a quality education, and shop owners will be assured of getting quality job applicants. I would also like to thank West Mesa administration and local industry partners that helped in our accreditation.”
