Students get a lift in learning 

By on December 30, 2012

Students in the Automotive Technology class at BOCES 2 WEMOCO use the lifts in their class to perform job tasks required by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF).

The WEMOCO Automotive Technology class received its accreditation through NATEF. In this class, the students learn to repair brakes, suspension and steering, electrical systems, the engine, engine performance, automatic transmissions, manual transmissions, drive axles and heating and air conditioning.

Dennis Velazquez (holding tire) and Mitch Loughborough put a tire on a car. Earlier in class, they had a car on the lift and were grinding the rotors on the brakes.
