Ford Maintenance and Light Repair Program


Program Overview

The Maintenance & Light Repair (MLR) Program, a one-year certificate program, is the product of a partnership between Ford Motor Company and select community colleges and technical schools, provides world-class Ford automotive training from Ford-certified instructors.

The program allows students to:

  • earn an MLR certificate in 12 months or fewer
  • learn the core skills needed to compete in the competitive automotive retail market
  • be ready to join the work force immediately after completion


Methods of instruction include web-based, classroom and "hands-on" technical training. The MLR curriculum provides students with the same technical training received by Ford Quick Lane technicians and includes instruction in:

  • Electrical Systems
  • Climate Control
  • Brake Systems
  • Steering & Suspension
  • Tire, Chassis and Maintenance
