Rick Garcia

I enjoy teaching students hands-on skills they can use in their career - as well as in life. It's always a joy to watch their capabilities grow over the year and know that when they finish the Automotive Services course at NCTA, they're ready and well-equipped to continue their education or start working in the automotive services industry directly out of high school.

  • Fun and Keeps You Busy

    Students should enroll because it’s a great way to learn your tools, parts, and how to use and take care of your equipment. It’s fun and keeps you busy as well as gives you many opportunities for colleges and trade schools. My favorite parts of class were the students, the environment of the class, being able to work together with each other to build motors, repair cars and/or trucks, and learn all about career options. Before I got into auto I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, but after I got involved in the class it opened my eyes to all the different things I got to do with working on cars.

  • Widen Horizons

    Students should enroll for a great opportunity to widen their horizons in the automotive world. My favorite thing about the class was getting the chance to learn new things and work on customer vehicles. The program has helped me get job offers in the field and work on things with an open mind without fear.
