Essential Questions
• What is the new NATEF model?
• Why is it necessary to teach maintenance and
light repair?
• How does an “Intro to Auto” course fit within a
complete Automotive Service Technology
Training Program?
• What are the essential units in an entry level
course?
• What will each student know and be able to do
at the completion an entry level course?
The 2013 NATEF Model
•
“In June 2012 NATEF published a new
model for automobile program
standards. This new model introduced
standards based on three (3) levels
rather than by automobile area
(brakes, electrical/electronic systems,
etc). The three levels are:
Maintenance & Light Repair (MLR),
Automobile Service Technology
(AST), and Master Automobile
Service Technology (MAST). Each
successive level includes all the tasks
of the previous level in addition to
newly designated tasks. In other
words, the AST task list includes all of
the MLR tasks plus additional tasks.
The MAST task list includes all of AST
tasks plus additional tasks specifically
for MAST.”

NATEF Model
What is a Task?
• “A task is a psychomotor or cognitive
entry-level learning activity consisting of
one or more measureable steps
accomplished through an instructor
presentation, demonstration, visualization
or a student application.”

• It should be noted that each task is not
dedicated an hour allotment…some tasks
take longer than others.
One NATEF Assumption
• “Individual courses of study will differ
across automobile technician training
programs”
• “Development of appropriate learning
delivery systems and tests which monitor
student progress will be the responsibility
of the individual training program”

NATEF Does Not Endorse
Curriculum
• “NATEF does not endorse specific curricular
materials nor provide instruction. It does,
however, set standards for the content of
instruction, which includes tasks, tools and
equipment, hours, and instructor qualifications.”
NATEF sets standards for…
Schools adopt
Tasks
Curricular Materials
Tools and Equipment
Hours
Instructor Qualifications
Basically…
• NATEF provides the required tasks and
hours, you provide the program course
structure, curriculum, and student
materials.

documents you need
and answers to your
questions at the new

New Course Design
• You have a new set of standards, now you
may need to re-design your courses within
your program. How do you do this? And
why is a basic course needed?

Automotive Statistics
• 84% of vehicles
need service, fluids,
or replacement
parts (Car Care Council, 2012)
• 10.8 years old is
the average age of
cars and trucks in
the USA (R. L. Polk & Co., 2012)
Common Vehicle on the Road Today
Is ~ 11 Years Old
Has 132,000+ Miles

So You Need a First Course…
•
•
•
•
What will your first course look like?
How will it feed your advanced programs?
How could it serve a community need?
How can you generate more informed
consumers AND increase the number of
highly-qualified technicians?
• How can you serve both populations at the
same time?
Attracting Non-Traditional Students
• Defined:
– What is a Non Traditional Student?
• “A non-traditional student would be any male or
female that is enrolled in a program of study where
the opposite gender accounts for more than 75%,
such as a male student enrolled in Health and
Human Services or a female in Automotive
Technology.”
» Obtained from http://www.gptc.edu/content.cfm?PageCode=other_non_traditional
The Case for Non-Traditional
Students…
• Careers should be based on abilities and interests, not
gender stereotypes.
• Men and women spend more than 30 years in the
workplace and why not enjoy it?
• Women can earn up to 30% more working in
nontraditional jobs.
• The right occupation can support other life goals.
• Nontraditional students can learn new ways of thinking
and dealing with others.
• New skills will be needed in key fields.
• Less than one-third of new occupations require a fouryear degree.
» Obtained from http://www.hawaii.edu/cte/publications/nontrad1.pdf
How do you attract non-traditional
students into your program?
• Open Discussion…
MLR Example
• It is difficult to generalize, since every secondary
and post-secondary school approaches this
uniquely.
– But if MLR requires 540 hours, then…
• It takes a minimum of 4 credits in a traditional secondary
school system to complete (540 hours/135 hours = 4).
– 90 minute block x 90 days = 8100 minutes or 135 hours
Or
– 45 minute periods x 180 days = 8100 minutes or 135 hours
• It takes a minimum of 20 credits/units in a traditional postsecondary system to complete depending how units are
allocated (e.g., if a unit = 27 hours of instruction/lab, then 540
hours/27 hours = 20 units).
What is Auto Upkeep?
• Was developed
because most texts
are either too
complex with
1500+ pages or too
simple to teach an
Introduction to
Automotive course.
Think of it this way…
1500+ Pages = Comprehensive Automotive Technology Textbook
Includes a lot of “Worth Being Familiar With” Information
Best Suited for MAST Programs
Auto Upkeep = 200 Pages = Best Suited for MLR/Basic Programs
Information Central to Discipline, Long Lasting Value Beyond the Classroom

How is the Auto Upkeep commonly
delivered?
• Most often offered as a 1 credit course, but also
used by some school districts as a ½ credit
course.
• Many community colleges and universities use it
as a first auto course or as an evening adult ed
course.
• Auto Upkeep was designed to have a balance
between in-class and hands-on instruction.
• Commonly two days a week are in-class and
three days a week are in the automotive lab.
What will each student know and be able to do
at the completion of Auto Upkeep?
• Over 150 competencies are assessed.
• Over 50% of MLR Tasks are addressed. And
remember, since MLR Tasks are also a part of AST and
MAST Tasks…Auto Upkeep builds a foundation for AST
and MAST students.
• In general, students become confident, empowered,
consumers and users of the automobile.
• Let’s look at the complete competency profile and the
NATEF MLR Matrix.
