The curriculum is composed of 16 units of instruction, covering the following topics: benchwork, fundamentals of automotive engines, preventive maintenance, automotive brakes, steering and front suspension, drive train and rear suspension, manual transmissions, automatic transmissions, fuel systems, accessories, complete automotive service, welding, and mathematics. The outline lists the instructional units to be taught for each year of a four-year secondary automotive mechanics program for either two-hour block or three-hour block courses. The curriculum outline also describes the curriculum and lists related study assignments and job sheets that are to be used with each unit. In addition, a list of required texts and resource materials is included. The curriculum outline was prepared to provide continuity between the secondary automotive mechanics program and automotive mechanics programs on the postsecondary levels. (KC)
