Let the students in the City College automotive technology program and Skills USA Club winterize your vehicle.


MSU BILLINGS NEWS SERVICES — Students in the City College at MSU Billings SkillsUSA Club will offer a free vehicle winterization inspection on Saturday, Oct. 25 from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. The community can bring their vehicle in to be evaluated for battery condition, safe tire pressures and conditions, proper fluid levels (including coolant), belt and hose inspection, and recommendations as needed.

“This is an opportune time for our students to provide winterization inspections,” remarked automotive technology instructor, Katherine Pfau. “The National Weather Services Offices in Montana have declared this week Montana Winter Awareness Week.”


Although the Skills USA Club is offering the winterization inspection at no cost they will be accepting donations to help defer the cost of competing in the Montana SkillsUSA Competition.  SkillsUSA is a partnership of students, teachers and industry professionals working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce. The 2015 state competition will be held on the MSU-Northern campus Monday Apr. 13 through Apr. 15.


For more information about this weekend’s vehicle winterization event contact Katherine Pfau at 247-3044 or Stacey Williamson at 247-3008.
