Get the skills to become a master service technician for Honda and Acura vehicles with GCC’s Professional Automotive Career Training (PACT) program.

Our PACT instructors are advanced-level ASE master technicians as well as Honda and Acura master technicians. You’ll get hands-on training as you work on new and rare vehicles donated directly from Honda and Acura for PACT training.

GCC also partners with local dealerships to get you into internships so you can earn while you learn about the product you love. You’ll graduate with certifications from Gateway Community College, plus you’ll have 60% of the training required to become an American Honda Motor Company master technician.
