Why Choose Toyota T-TEN
Clark College's Automotive Technology program is one of a handful of colleges in the country, and the first in the Pacific Northwest, to receive accreditation for the Toyota Technician & Education Network (T-TEN) program. T-TEN students will receive instruction from factory-trained instructors and guidance from dealership mentor technicians. Students graduate from the T-TEN program with the confidence, skills, knowledge, and certifications needed to begin a challenging and profitable career.
T-TEN is described as a world-class training program with the ultimate goal of training and placing Toyota and Lexus certified technicians in permanent dealership-based positions. Our T-TEN program requires a Toyota Dealer sponsorship prior to admission. Entry into the two-year program is annual, beginning summer quarter. The format dictates a quarter of instruction on campus followed by a quarter of on-the-job learning. This means that for the two years that they are in the program, students alternate one quarter of full-time classroom and lab practice with one quarter as a full-time Toyota or Lexus dealership apprentice.
