LA CROSSE, Wis. - Students in the Auto Vocational Industrial Clubs of America (VICA) Club at Western Wisconsin Technical College (WWTC) will be hosting their annual Car Care Clinic in La Crosse on Saturday, April 9, from 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. The clinic will be held in the parking lot of the south side Wal-Mart.

Students will inspect engine systems and related trouble codes, cooling systems, suspension systems, steering systems and tires, brake systems, exhaust systems, lighting systems, air conditioning systems, and driveline systems. No vehicles will be lifted off the ground to run these checks and only inspections will be done, not vehicle repairs.

The general public is invited to attend. Students are asking for a $10 donation per car that will go toward the upcoming WWTC Auto VICA student trip to the Skills USA-VICA Spring Conference in Madison.

Students in the Automotive Technician program work on automobiles and light trucks, performing preventative maintenance tasks, analyzing the causes of breakdown and making repairs. Students also enjoy the challenge of diagnosing mechanical problems. Graduates of the program are prepared for entry-level automotive technician positions and are eligible to take any or all of the eight independent automotive certification tests through the National Institute of Automotive Service Excellence.
