About Us

The California Automotive Resource Center (CalARC) is a hub for students and professionals in the automotive industry.

Whether you are a smog technician working in the field, an instructor at a college or trade school, or a student preparing to make that next step in your career, you’ll find numerous resources.

Browse our site to learn about career training programs and recertification courses. Automotive instructors can take advantage of tools to manage classes and report grades.

The CalARC was created by the Bureau of Automotive Repair and is administered by the Foundation for California Community Colleges—a unique 501(c)(3) nonprofit that supports the Community College system through diverse and far-reaching programs that touch on key issues in California and throughout the nation, including work development, student success, air quality, technology, healthcare, and learning programs for at-risk students.

As part of our commitment to clean air and the environment, the Foundation has administered air quality programs for BAR and other organizations for over a decade. Learn more about some of the Foundation’s programs at foundationccc.org
