What is a Mercedes-Benz Certified Systems Technician?

This new automotive training model creates a pathway to earn a Mercedes-Benz Certified Systems Technician Level 1 after 3 semesters (fall, spring, summer), or one year in the program and can lead to an Associate’s Degree in Automotive Technology.

The college level certificates earned will align with Mercedes-Benz curriculum. All the training will be provided on Mercedes-Benz automobiles with MBUSA tools and equipment where required.
