Most courses offered at Davis Tech are self-paced, which means you can choose how quickly you move through the course material. If you already know the information or have the skills required, you can complete the tests and finish the material quickly - you choose the pace. If the class material is new to you, then take the time you need to make sure you understand the information. The instructors are here to help you one on one.
Most programs at Davis Tech are hands-on, not lecture based. Davis Tech emphasizes the skills required on the job. For example, by the third day of class in our Automotive or Diesel programs, students are in the lab turning wrenches.
