Dunwoody adds Mercedes-Benz credential option in Automotive

MB Campus becomes sixth manufacturer-specific program

Dunwoody College of Technology has added another manufacturer-specific training option for students enrolled in the Automotive Service Technology program. The Mercedes-Benz (MB) Campus is an online, add-on credential for students interested in working at a Mercedes-Benz facility.

Sponsored by Sears Imports, the program is provided at no extra cost to students enrolled in the Automotive Service Technology program.

“Dunwoody is one of the only automotive programs in the State to provide these add-on credentials as part of its curriculum options, providing added value to students who want to work on specific manufacturer vehicles,” said Robert Larkin, Director of Automotive Technology.

The addition of MB Campus means the College now has four add-on credential options – Audi Education Partnership, MoparCAP Local, MB Campus, and Subaru Knowledge, Information & Learning – along with two associate’s degree options – Honda Professional Automotive Career Training and Toyota’s Technician Training & Education Network.  

During the program, students will study Mercedes information systems and various maintenance procedures. They will also gain knowledge of engine, transmission, chassis/brake, electronic, and basic electricity fundamentals.

Students complete Mercedes online training as an elective, and their progress is monitored by the Dunwoody MB Campus coordinator. Training credentials come directly from Mercedes, preparing students for employment at any Mercedes dealership nationwide.

“Dunwoody’s Automotive Service Technology program continues to have a 100 percent placement rate, with the demand for skilled technicians far out-pacing the number of graduates,” Larkin said. “These are great careers, in an industry that is often on the cutting edge of new technologies.”
