On Feb 13th, the automotive program at BC had a site visit to review standards for NATEF certification. The evaluation team of four was chaired by Andrew Cawelty.
The faculty in automotive did a fabulous job preparing responses addressing the 11 standards described in the NATEF handbook. It was interesting to me to see that one standard was specifically dedicated to e-learning and Dan Johnson explained to me that the courses use materials from the web that are current as opposed to only relying on text books. I want to recognize the faculty in the program: George Canaday, Vic Posey, Will Taylor, Dan Johnson, Darrel Shinn, and Tom Loveall and the Dean for STEM, Liz Rozell, for their dedication to the quality of our program. I also want to thank the advisory committee members who participated in the certification: Mark Waybright (Motor City GMC), Robert Northam (Eye St. Automotive), and Brint Mackey (McWilliams & Walden Automotive) for their ongoing support to our program.
