The Automotive Technology students are supported by their teacher, Mr. Robert Schwarz. “I am proud of our students for achieving this important certification. It helps keep the environment clean and our customers cool. This is one of many industry certifications that the Automotive Technology students can achieve during their three years at MBIT. “
