Curriculum Features

◆The only school recognized by BMW in Japan
Kyoto Computer Gakuin Automobile School formed a business alliance that aims to cultivate auto mechanics with BMW Japan in 2014. Supported by BMW Japan, our schools are the only schools in Japan where BMW automobile specialized scan tools are introduced as training equipment. A scan tool is the most important tool for current mechanics because it is possible to diagnose some faults through the internet, adjust and repair based on the information of features and maintenance records of each type of car. Students are able to utilize this scan tool, that only BMW authorized dealers are originally permitted to hold, as educational material for class and for training. Furthermore, BMW technicians with the “MEISTER” qualification, are welcomed as instructors. It is possible to take classes where the latest model BMW cars are used as educational material.
