At the completion of Motor Vehicle Mechanic the student will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate the acquired skills to make the transition from the classroom and lab to an actual job in the automotive industry.
  2. Perform entry level of diagnoses, Service and repair of automotive engines, electrical system, transmission engine performance brake steering and demonstrate safety use and operation of hand tools power tools and specialized automotive tools and equipment and suspension system.
  3. Access and interpret automotive service information both manual and from the computer keep / herself abreast of the latest automotive technology updates.
  4. Participate in the automotive trade and work in a team environment using a proper work ethics and personal accountability.

PSLO Assessment Report Summary

What we looked at:

The motor vehicle mechanic certificate assessment focused on (PSLO #2) Perform entry level of diagnoses, service and repair of automotive engine, electrical system, transmission, engine performance, brake steering and demonstrate and operation of hand tools and power tools and specialized automotive tools and equipment and suspension system. (PSLO #)

What we found:

  • The results of the written and practical exams showed that 12 out of 14 students or 86% got a "C" or better in wearing the right personal protective equipment (PPE) like safety helmet, safety mask, safety gloves, safety glasses, safety shoes, proper clothing, and etc. during hands-on practices.
  • The results of the written and practical exams showed that 7 out of 8 students or 88% got a "C" or better in estimating materials needed for floors, walls, ceilings, and roofs from a set of blueprints.

What we are planning to work on:

  • Provide a check- list for PPE for every student to use before lab periods.
  • Provide a complete set of tools and equipment for students to practice their estimating skills.

Recommendations for students:

Students must follow the Motor Vehicle Mechanic Program suggested schedule in the COM-FSM General Catalog in order to complete their study in a timely matter. Students enrolled in this programmed should emphasized hands on practical work as regular worker on the auto-mechanic industry

AR Review Cycle: AY- 2011-2013

  1. Program Goals

    This program is designed to develop an understanding of the basic purpose, construction, operation and service of component parts and assemblies of an automobile. Students will develop the knowledge and skills required to disassemble, inspect, reassemble and perform basic repairs and maintenance on motor vehicle units and components. Based on the common program learning outcomes from the various sections of the career education, the following are its goals and objectives:

    1. Identify safety and occupational health requirements in the specific trade area being studied.
    2. Use competently specified hand and power tools.
    3. Read and interpret information from technical drawings related to the respective trade.
    4. Perform hand skills in their respective trades.
    5. Participate in the respective trade.
  2. Program History

    Fall Semester 2005, Spring 2006, Summer 2006-first program offering;
    Fall 2006-was not offered to pave way for offering of new program-Small Engine Equipment &
    Outboard Motor Repair;
    Fall 2007-this program was offered from then on

    Course outlines were made following the program learning objectives under the Certificate of Achievement in Career Education, which already existed in the COM-FSM catalogue. It was designed to have a maximum student seating of ten (10). There were ten (10) first batch of students during Fall 2005.

    Significant milestones / current activities:

    Since its implementation, students were involved in various activities such as repairs and maintenance services of vehicles given to vehicle owners from the local community and college faculty and staff including college vehicles and fabrication of trainers that were shown during the annual Technology & Trade Exhibit done since 2007 up to the present. During its maiden year, a move was made to initiate support from the public to donate their used cars for students to work on. Generous donors answered the call and the college received six (6) donor cars that were dismantled by the students and work-study groups. These assemblies and components were made as lab. trainers for students.

    The United States Department of Agriculture (Pohnpei) donated one Toyota Pick
    -Up for students learning and college use in the year 2011. Students repaired the vehicle and now used as college transport at Pohnpie campus. In spring 2013 Mr. Robert Orosco a Filipino, donated one diesel engine for student practical hands on. In fall 2013 Mr. Mangubat and work-study student made other training mock up one Nissan engine with complete accessories they get it from junkyard at Nett’s Area. In summer with my student at vtm-103 make another electrical mock- up for practical activity on auto-electricity those mock –up give an advantage in terms of actual activity they align it what topic we discussed on the classroom. Student should emphasized more on practical hands on, add more time for practical activity to developed student learning experience in motor vehicle mechanic.

  3. Program Description
