New types of job skills are being identified in the automotive industry as the electro-mechanical components of vehicles become more automated and controlled by computers. As a result, automotive service technicians will need enhanced electronic, software, and troubleshooting skills to maintain and repair future vehicles.

At the 2018 Connected Vehicle Trade Association (CVTA) Summit, the Center for Advanced Automotive Technology (CAAT) spoke about the organization's role in educating students. The CAAT collaborates with industry, education and government to develop programs to meet the future needs for skilled technicians in the automotive industry.

The CAAT also provides Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) outreach activities to middle and high school students and offers professional development events and webinars for educators and industry. The CAAT has both local and national reach and impact by providing free access to the courses that they have been instrumental in developing. CAAT curriculum resources can be downloaded from the web site Resource Library.
