Advisory Board


Our advisory board is a crucial component to the success of the Walla Walla Community College Automotive Mechanics Technology Program. The board consists of local businessmen and women. All represent various groups of the public as well as automotive industry. Former students, technicians, dealership personnel, independent repair facilities, automotive parts stores, fleet operations and educators. All are driven to do everything possible to make our community a better place to work and live. Our advisory board contributes much time to the training of our students. They contribute time and money to make sure our local automotive industry has quality entry level students coming to them as potential highly trained, permanent employees, and technicians. 

These are the many local employers that have hired our students and serve on our advisory board..
