The goal of the T-TEN program is to train future automotive technicians to work for Toyota dealership service departments. The T-TEN standard requires student technicians to receive 2 years of training that is divided between technical college classroom/lab education and Toyota/Lexus dealership internship education experience. The T-TEN program requires each student to be sponsored by a Toyota or Lexus dealer before entry into the program. The student works at the dealer in a paid internship position for a minimum of one half of the T-TEN training program. The T-TEN program at MCC consists of four quarter/terms of classroom and hands-on automotive systems instruction and 3 quarter/terms of dealer internship hands-on instruction. Each college quarter (term), the student-technicians alternate between instruction classes at MCC and internships at the sponsoring dealer.
MCC’s T-TEN program gives you the opportunity to learn from Toyota trained and certified instructors. In addition, students will be prepared to complete certification testing by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE), considered the gold standard for independent certification of service technician skills and knowledge. Toyota requires graduates pass at least two ASE tests and meet a dealership experience requirement to be granted status as a Toyota Certified Technician.
