Automotive Technology – Mopar College Automotive Program (CAP)

Moraine Valley Community College is one of 26 colleges in the nation, and the only one in Illinois, that offers this manufacturer-specific program. This program is supported by Chrysler Group LLC. Moraine Valley’s Automotive Technology Department is provided with Chrysler’s training curriculum; a variety of components; and a variety of Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram vehicles. Students benefit from learning the newest technology available in the automotive repair industry. This program has a similar structure to the college’s general automotive Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree program, but it focuses course information and hands-on activities exclusively using Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Ram vehicles. Students in this program are required to work a minimum of 1,280 hours (paid internship) at a Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or Ram dealership. Students complete an extensive list of Chrysler training classes and graduate with an A.A.S. degree and a Chrysler-issued Mopar CAP Certificate. This two-year program commences every fall semester. Those interested in enrolling in the program need to submit an application which can be found at morainevalley.edu/automotive.
