How to Get Acura Dealership Certified

If you are an automotive technician wanting to gain the skills and certifications that Acura dealerships, other service centers and automotive technician jobs in general are searching for, then you may want to get Honda/Acura dealership certified. With certification through Honda/Acura, you would be qualified to work on Honda and Acura vehicles and show employers and customers that you possess the experience and skills that they are looking for. Below we will discuss the two simple ways to become an Acura dealership certified technician.

Honda technician career training at a technical institute (PACT)

Honda offers a two-year Professional Automotive Career Training (PACT) program, where you’ll learn to diagnose, maintain, and repair Honda vehicles. While enrolled in the program, you will have the ability to earn 10 valuable certifications.

While enrolled at PACT, you will encounter electrical fundamentals, fuel and emissions, and engines. You will also learn about PACT standards, operations and procedures that are currently used in the field.

During this course, you will get training in:

  • Diesel engine performance
  • HVAC
  • Electrical systems and electronics
  • Engine repair
  • Brakes
  • Maintenance and inspection
  • Steering and suspension

The two paths of the PACT program

If enrolled in the PACT program, you can choose to take a specific area certificate, or a two-year associate’s degree. The subject area certificate is within Honda/Acura's factory training certifications. Or you can combine general education courses with Honda/Acura's factory training certifications to earn an Associate’s degree. In this program, you will focus on the balance of interpersonal, academic and automotive general maintenance and repair skills.

If you are unsure about whether school is a good choice for you, why not contact a PACT Coordinator and talking to them about your goals? Go to http://hondapact.com/about/programs and find a school close to you that offers PACT Training. The PACT program and Honda/Acura training is CASE certified and a nationally recognized academic program. In addition, CASE (Continuing Automotive Service Education) is licensed by the ASE board as a certified automotive education program.

This program offers a number of benefits, including hands-on learning and technical assistance. In the program, you will take classes on:

  • Engine
  • Maintenance
  • Electrical Advance
  • Electrical Fundamentals
  • Drive Train/Transmission
  • Steering and Suspension
  • Fuel and Emissions basics
  • Brake System
  • Air Conditioning
  • Restraints

In addition to classes like these, Honda also offers Honda Service Technical College (STC), a program to help businesses and dealerships get more complete technical training for their vehicles. If you’re already working at a Honda dealership, and you want your Honda dealership certification, this may be the route for you.

If you aren’t sure whether automotive school is right for you, contact an instructor at the school and speak with him or her about your goals and hopes for the future. Whichever choice you make, becoming a Honda/Acura dealership certified technician could only improve your chances of earning a higher salary and landing that job in a service center or dealership. Plus, it will make you a better overall mechanic.
