Eau Claire (WQOW) – It was a win-win for CVTC’s automotive students and Eau Claire residents. CVTC students gave free vehicle inspections to anyone who stopped by the shop on Saturday.

Instructors said it was a great way for their students to learn first-hand how to handle customers and service write-ups. Instructors also said it was a great way to educate the public on maintenance of their vehicles. Rather than waiting until something breaks, they could prevent problems from happening. The students inspected Between 20 to 30 cars.

“Even by the first semester you can see the light bulbs turning on and you know to see the impact that we can make with the program where they can leave here and basically go anywhere in the country and find a job, because the cars are the same everywhere,” said Travis Gay, automotive instructor at CVTC.

The check-up consisted of a 41-point inspection that includes checking fluid levels, tires, lights, and other system components. After the inspection, the technicians review any discrepancies with the motorist and provide information about proper vehicle maintenance and repair.
