Nashoba Tech students honored for automotive mechanical skills

PUBLISHED: | UPDATED:

WESTFORD — Several students in Nashoba Valley Technical High School’s Automotive Technology program were honored recently for passing all or some of the National Automotive Students Skills Standards Assessment.

The assessment has eight components, but four — brakes, electrical/electronics systems, engine performance and suspension and steering — are considered to be the core components. Students who pass those four areas are considered to be certified auto mechanics.

NA3SA is an independent, nonprofit organization with a mission of evaluating technician-training programs against standards developed by the automotive industry, and recommending qualifying programs for certification by the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence.

The students are:

* Joshua Caris, junior, of Pepperell, all four core components, plus Engine Repair and Heating/Air Conditioning.

* Kenneth Gilman, junior, of Shirley, three core components.

* Tyler Greathead, class of 2010, of Pepperell, three core components.

* Alex Krickl, class of 2010, of Groton, all four core components, plus Engine Repair.
