Students would receive training to become state vehicle safety inspectors under a reorganized automobile education program at South Hagerstown High School, officials said.
The school's automobile education program has typically given students a basic understanding of car mechanics. But under the new proposal, which was approved by the Washington County Board of Education Tuesday night, students would be able to specialize in mechanics or learn to become a state safety inspector after completing the car course, said Washington County school officials.
School officials believe there are many students who do not want to become fully certified mechanics, but are interested in becoming safety inspectors.
