Summary

The curriculum and planning guide has two objectives: to give the instructor, planner, and counselor a guide which furnishes current information on the trade, facility planning, equipment, and resource information for all levels of occupational instruction in the field of auto mechanics maintenance and repair; and to enable the student to be employed in the occupation. The introduction discusses the trend away from programs and facilities designed around the use of cars as the sole educational system to the planning of more flexible-use spaces for free-standing engines, transmissions, chassis assemblies, and hydraulic systems, whether they are for automobiles, airplanes, or snowmobiles. In the new mechanics programs the mechanics simulator, trainer, and mock-up areas of the laboratory should represent as much as 70 percent of the student stations to provide skills required to tune-up and repair all types of engines. A table for planning space requirements for a vehicle maintenance cluster is included. The remainder of the guide is in the form of outlines under seven headings: suggested orientation course outline; skill development, chassis, and engine mechanics outline; skill development, auto body mechanics; automotive technology; tools and facility planning; reference materials; and instructional aids for auto mechanics.
