The Trades and Industry Division is designed to meet the
demand for trained entry level technicians, machinists, and
welders as well as the Energy Systems Technology Program
(EST) which provides the“core” electronics curriculum that
makes up the first year of a two year Associate Degree in one
of three areas in the ESTEC program offered at Idaho State
University (ISU).
The programs provide training using the latest competency-
based curriculum and practical hands-on experience. Automotive
and Diesel students will spend approximately two hours per day
in the classroom and four and one-half hours per day performing
hands-on training in the labs.
Automotive and diesel technicians are needed to repair,
service, and overhaul a variety of automotive/light duty trucks,
construction, industrial, farm, and trucking industry machines.
Automotive and Diesel technicians use complex problem solving
skills to perform routine maintenance and diagnostic repairs. It
is recommended that applicants possess strong computer skills
prior to enrolling in the program . Technicians in training will
utilize their mechanical aptitudes as well as strong computer and
math skills. Successfully employed technicians may be required
to test drive vehicles, to confer with customers, to complete
repair orders, and to work in areas where they may be required
to bend, stoop, stretch, twist, lift, and/or reach as needed.
The qualified welder can find employment at several levels.
Welding is considered a tool or skill by many trades, such
as pipefitters, sheet metal ironworkers, boilermakers, bridge
builders, fabricating shops, and production lines. A qualified
welder uses many skills to join various types of materials using
different procedures, equipment, and processes. Strong computer
and math skills are a benefit to the qualified welder. Successfully
employed welders may be required to confer with customers,
to complete work orders, and to work in areas where they may
be required to bend, stoop, stretch, twist, lift, and/or reach as
needed.
* Please note that all Associate of Applied Science, Advanced
Technical Certificate and Technical Certificate Trades and
Industry students must take and pass MTD-101 and ASE 102
Program Costs
In addition to the semester registration fees and mandatory
health insurance:
Automotive and Diesel students can expect to spend an
approximate total of $4,000 on books and tools per program and
approximately $55 per semester for coverall rental.
Welding students can expect to spend approximately $475 on
books, tools, and equipment for the technical certificate option or
$800 for the advanced technical certificate and AAS options.
Graduates are required to sit for proficiency exams at the
conclusion of their program. Information regarding costs and

available from the program instructor(s).
Automotive and Diesel
The State of Idaho and Eastern Idaho Technical College have
adopted the eight Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) areas as
guidelines for our Automotive (Automobile & Light Truck A1 -
A9) and Diesel programs (Medium-Heavy Truck T1 – T8). All
instructors in the Automotive and Diesel programs are ASE
