School Notes

  • Denver Automotive Institute, as we were known then, held its first class of 27 students in downtown Denver, Colorado in May of 1963. As student population and demand grew, a Diesel Mechanics curriculum was added in 1966. Within three years a newly-renovated 71,000 sq. ft. facility opened, fully realizing our new name: Denver Automotive and Diesel College - DADC. Enhancing program offerings and estabilishing credibility as one of the top national educators became a priority. The consistent and regular refinements we made met various NATEF requirements and we became a "Master Certified Automotive School". Soon afterwards, we further enhanced our programs by adding Associate of Applied Science Degree Programs in Automotive, Diesel and Master Technology. DADC's Automotive and Diesel programs can help you learn the diagnostic procedures necessary to determine complex problems, fix them and provide ongoing maintenance. In addition, you'll have an in-depth understanding of why automotive and diesel engines work the way they do, allowing you to better fix and maintain vehicles, and provide a higher level of service. Using hands-on training, a solid system of knowledge and our long-standing reputation with major manufacturers and shops, we can help you jump-start your career in the Automotive and Diesel Industries. Denver Automotive and Diesel College (DADC) can offer you endless possibilities and opportunities to pursue skiing, snowboarding, snowdecks, snowskates, and other winter activities. DADC utilizes several fund sources to assist students in paying for their education. Funding is provided by Federal grants, various scholarships, Veterans benefits, low interest Perkins (Campus Based) loans, low interest Stafford loans, and by other fund sources specifically designed to fund education to qualified applicants at DADC.
