Cost for Non-Apprentices
In general, tuition and fees for full-time, non-apprentice students in automotive service technician programs tend to total from about $7,000 to $15,000 or more for four levels of training.
Programs for non-apprentices are often designed to replicate some of the training that apprentices receive while on the job. So they tend to include more courses and shop time.
Cost for Registered Apprentices
In contrast, total tuition and fees for full-time registered apprentices generally range from about $1,500 to $4,000 or more for the four levels.
