Student Technician Training Program

Our Smog Referee stations are located on Community Colleges and vocational centers, and when you take your vehicle to a Referee, you are also supporting students in the community. Automotive technology students enrolled in the Student Technician Training Program gain paid experience while training to become licensed smog technicians. In addition to hands-on exercises that focus on developing core skills, students receive training in safety, communication, and administration while interacting with the public and their vehicles. This program supports the successful training of over 100 potential smog technicians annually.
