Welcome to Mr. Halbison's web page!

 Welcome parents and students. I am very excited to be teaching automotive technology. There will always be a need and a demand for automotive technicians. My goal is to get the next  generation of auto techs off to a good start with information and training they will need to step into the automotive industry and have a successful career.

Biography

 I graduated from Katy High School in 1988 and attended Universal Technical Institute where I became a certified Automotive Technician. I began my career working for Ford and have achieved the title of Ford Senior Master Technician. After 27 years in the auto industry, I have decided to come back and teach the next generation of automotive technicians.

Program Information

 Automotive Technology is accredited by the National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF), a member of the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). Accreditation by NATEF is a very labor intensive process. Automotive Technology was evaluated against 11 different standards, which were developed in a cooperative effort between ASE, NATEF, the automotive industry, and the education industry. A highly qualified team scored the program using criteria from the 11 NATEF standards. This means that our programs are teaching skills that have been identified as being integral to technician success, skills that prospective employers will be looking for in entry level applicants.

There are major benefits for students in addition to the quality training. Automotive technicians can become certified through ASE by passing rigorous, comprehensive written testing and showing proof of two (2) years of wage earning experience in the area(s) in which they tested. Students who successfully complete the NATEF accredited two (2) year automotive program of their choice here at Miller Career & Technology Center (MCTC) will receive a waiver of one (1) year of the two (2) year wage earning experience requirement from ASE. This gives these students a head start on their journey to becoming successful automotive technicians. It truly is a win-win situation for all!

Feel free to contact me if you have questions. You may also contact our counselor at 281-237-6300 for information about eligibility requirements for our programs.
