College Credit Agreement with Automotive Training Center

Eastern Center for Arts and Technology (EASTERN) Automotive Technology and Collision Repair Technology students can benefit from a partnership with Automotive Training Center (ATC). ATC will evaluate the student’s records received from EASTERN and award advanced standing credit for up to three subject areas (not to exceed a maximum of 16 weeks of study).

In order for students to take advantage of this advanced standing, they need to meet certain criteria, such as verification by the student’s EASTERN instructor that the student has successfully completed a minimum of 85% of the program tasks listed on the program progress chart, graduation from EASTERN with a grade point average of 3.0 or higher, an academic grade point average of 2.0 or higher, and a minimum attendance record of 85% or better in the program. ATC will also administer an Advanced Standing examination in which students may earn advanced placement in a maximum of three different subject areas: Brakes, Electrical Systems I, Suspension and Steering, Welding and non-Structural Damage Repair, and Painting & Refinishing.

“We have had many successful graduates continue their education at ATC,” said Joe Greb, EASTERN’s Assistant Director. “We have always been partners and mutual supporters of skilled trades. It is great to formalize an articulation agreement that will benefit students from our Automotive Technology and Collision Repair Technology programs.”

ATC is an ACCSC-accredited career technician school with campuses in Exton, PA, and Warminster, PA. Through hands-on training focusing on the modern aspects of the automotive, collision, diesel, hi-performance, and marine industries, ATC graduates are prepared for a career that they’re passionate about. Our graduates have landed careers with some of the area’s best-known and credible employers. For more information about ATC, please visit
