Atlanta Technical College Partners with Nissan Technician Training Academy (NTTA) to Train Automotive Students

September 3, 2020

The automotive technology program at Atlanta Technical College recently entered a partnership with the Nissan Technician Training Academy program (NTTA) to train automotive technicians and encourage professional growth.  These training courses will provide a pipeline for Atlanta Technical College students to get hired by Nissan. As a part of the partnership, Nissan has donated multiple training cars and provided resources for instructors to access their virtual academy, allowing the Atlanta Technical College community to become Nissan-certified technicians.

The NTTA program provides factory-specific training on vehicles, an apprenticeship program offering hands-on learning, and a pipeline into an ever-growing field of automotive service and repair.  “We are very happy about this partnership because of the investment Nissan is making in ATC and its students,” said Dr. Ian Toppin, Dean of Industrial and Transportation Technologies.  “The career opportunities it provides for students while they are still in the program and after graduation are life-changing, creating a profound impact in the Metro Atlanta community.  At Atlanta Technical College, we encourage students to pursue professional and personal development opportunities in order to become better global citizens.”
