Toyota T-Ten


Umpqua Community College’s partnership with Toyota offers a Toyota Option for students who want to become Toyota Certified in addition to the Automotive Technology Certificates and AAS Degree.

The goal of the T-TEN program is to train future automotive technicians to work for Toyota dealership service departments. The T-TEN standard requires student technicians to receive 2 years of training that is divided between technical college classroom/lab education and Toyota dealership internship education experience.

The students need to complete the following requirements:

  • Meet all school requirements for degree, including all general education requirements.
  • Pass each of Toyota’s required tests in ELearning and Instructor led, Toyota infused classes. All test scores must be 80% or higher for student seeking Toyota certificate.
  • Complete an approved Worksite Education Experience of a minimum 640 hours (Note: 425 hours are included in the UCC degree), which increases electives from 11 to 13 (see Program Adviser)
  • Pass any TWO ASE tests from A-1 through A-8
  • Pass an Air-Conditioning Certificate from one of the following organizations:
    • ASE (Refrigerant recovery and recycling certification test)
    • Mobile Air Conditioning Society
    • International Mobile Air Conditioning Association

Total Degree requirements for AAS degree with Toyota option = 91

Students in the T-TEN program will be responsible for travel, housing, and living expenses during the required summer internship. Cost varies according to internship location, and are not covered by student fees.
