Dunwoody Honda Professional Automotive Career Training

Dunwoody’s Honda Professional Auto Career Training program will allow you to master service and repair exclusively on Honda/Acura vehicles.

Train on new and rare vehicles like Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) vehicles and an Acura TSX, master automotive systems like Hybrid/Green Technologies and Telematics, and reinforce your learning during a paid internship at a sponsoring Honda/Acura dealership or independent training facility.

Instruction comes from a Master ASE Certified Honda Instructor, which means you will be learning from a professional who has worked in—and has been certified by—the automotive industry. ). And many of Dunwoody’s vehicles were donated directly from manufacturers, specifically for student training.

Upon graduation, you will be certified in 10 categories of Honda Repair as well as prepared to take required ASE certification tests. These certifications will allow you to work at any Honda dealer in the nation.

Since Honda and Dunwoody’s partnership began, Dunwoody has trained many successful Honda/Acura technicians—many of whom are working and advancing at the dealership where they served their internship.

Because of this long history of success, Dunwoody’s Honda/Acura Professional Auto Career Training Program (PACT) program has received several awards from American Honda, including an award for being one of the best Honda PACT automotive schools in the nation.
