Transportation Industry Sector

Career Pathways offered by San Diego Unified:

The Transportation industry sector is designed to provide a foundation in transportation services for all industrial technology education students in California. The pathways emphasize real-world, occupationally relevant experiences of significant scope and depth in structural repair and refinishing and system diagnostics and repair. The standards are designed to integrate academic and technical preparation and focus on career awareness, career exploration, and skill preparation in the two pathways. Integral components include classroom, laboratory, hands-on contextual learning, and project- and work-based instruction as well as internship, community classroom, cooperative career technical education, and leadership development. The Transportation sector standards prepare students for continued training, postsecondary education, and entry to a career.

Transportation courses offered at Clairemont, Crawford, Madison, Mira Mesa, and Morse High Schools are nationally accredited by the National Automotive Technical Education Foundation (NATEF). All NATEF students are eligible and encouraged to take the Automotive Service Excellence exams, successful completion of which can provide them with an industry-recognized credential.
