jim baumPhilosophy: I believe that every student should have the right to learn in a fun and safe environment. My job is to make sure that you will learn automotive technology theory, hands on experience, ethical business practices, and a confident approach to automotive repair. Part of what I am trying to do is make you excited about returning to class each day. I introduce you to real world experiences and a realistic view of what it will be like working in the automotive repair industry. We try to emulate the automotive industry as closely as possible. By the time you are done with the program you should be familiar with the daily tasks found in this industry. You will be prepared to enter the industry as an entry level technician, service advisor, or parts technician.

Work Experience: I have been working in the automotive industry all of my adult life. I have worked at General Motors dealers from 1981-1997. I worked for Alameda County Public Works for three years, and Wyo-Tech for two years. I am a Chevrolet Master Technician, Cadillac Gold Technician, Hendrick Master Technician, ASE Master Technician, MACS Certified Instructor, and a California State Certified Journey Level Automotive Technician.
