Audi Education Partnership

Becoming an Expert Level Audi-Certified Technician begins with the AEP. If you’re a student at ATI, you can complete the AEP program requirements alongside normal coursework through self-paced, online training modules.

After completing the online modules, you’ll apply for an apprenticeship with an Audi dealership. Once employed, over the next 18 months, you’ll attend eight (8) weeks of Audi-specific classroom training that will equip you with the knowledge and skills you need.
