carclassCar Class with Becca
Saturday, April 28 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Registration required

This class is for men, women and young adults. The class goes over a typical inspection sheet that is received when you bring your vehicle in for service. You learn how to properly maintain your car and what services to avoid. You learn how to extend the life of your car and how to save money on maintenance and extra repairs, how your car works, from the four strokes of a engine, to basic brake mechanics, to suspension set ups. As a result, you leave feeling empowered, full of knowledge that will help you be a better consumer. This class will also teach you how to change your tire and safely jump start your car.  Class is free.  Please register by phone: 201-337-3742 or online by Clicking Here.

Becca  attended Montclair High School, which had a special program for auto mechanics. She went on to graduate from The University of Wisconsin-Madison with a Bachelor of Science. After working a few years, she decided to go back to school for auto mechanics. She attended Lincoln Tech in Union, NJ and received her degree. Becca has passed all her ASE exams and is qualified as a Master Technician. She has worked as a technician repairing cars at Sears, Nissan, Mitsubishi, and Mazda. When she became pregnant, Becca left the shop to work as a Service Advisor at Nissan.

With experience both in the shop and behind the desk, Becca knows the inner workings of dealerships and aftermarket repair shops. She has experienced the good, the bad and the ugly. After countless conversations with friends and family, it became glaringly obvious to her that the general public is not getting a fair deal when it came to repair work. The idea for this class started a long time ago, and now it has blossomed into something great. Car Class with Becca has already helped so many and it can help you too.
