Ranken Technical College in St. Louis, MO, has been a leader in automotive training since 1907 when it was founded to educate, train, and prepare students for employment and advancement in several technical fields.
The Technician.Academy team was treated to a complete tour of the Parkland College facility. It has four classrooms dedicated to the automotive program along with fifteen separate lifts. There are also three up-to-date alignment bays and a fully integrated chassis dyno.
In a perfect world, everyone would be able to go out to his or her vehicle and make necessary repairs without any input from professional automotive technicians. Unfortunately, thousands of people begin making repairs on their vehicles alone, and often end up causing damage to their vehicles.
