Automotive students and instructorCerritos College’s Automotive Technology Program recently received more than 700 automotive parts donated by DENSO Products and Services Americas, Inc., an affiliate of DENSO Corporation, a global automotive components manufacturer. The parts will be used for hands-on student training, and some components will be shared with local high school automotive programs, including Norwalk and Artesia High Schools.

“We donated to Cerritos College because of its strong automotive technician training program and because it serves the Long Beach area.  We hope the components will be used to teach future generations of automotive technicians how to repair and replace vital engine components and systems,” said Wayne Eiffes, senior manager, Quality, Technical Services and Warranty, DENSO Products and Services Americas, Inc.

"The automotive department will utilize these components in the auto electrical classes, air conditioning classes, and engine performance classes,” said David Roper, instructor in the College’s Automotive Technology program. “Students will be able to completely disassemble the donated components and see the internal workings, further enabling their ability to properly diagnose faults. We are thankful to DENSO for their continued support to our automotive program.”
