By Guy Harrison, Media & Marketing Specialist

APACHE JUNCTION, Ariz. - As the cost of a simple oil change rises, more and more automobile owners are rolling up their sleeves to perform routine maintenance on their own vehicles.

Thanks to Central Arizona College's community education program, members of the community can learn how to change their car's oil and handle other preventative maintenance through a class offered at the Superstition Mountain Campus.

Car Care Basics: Community Enrichment will teach students general automotive vehicle maintenance basics.

In an open forum, students will receive answers to questions about car ownership. This class is designed to help students gain confidence and peace of mind through better knowledge and basic automotive abilities.

The class is scheduled for Sat., Nov. 19 from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. and costs just $49 to attend.

Alan Roby instructs the course. He started his obsession with taking apart all things mechanical at the age of eight, assembling a Visible V8 before single-handedly restoring a 1929 Model "A" Ford as a young teenager.

Having worked for General Motors, Ford and Chrysler, among others, Roby holds certifications as an ASE certified master technician, Arizona State Licensed Emissions Inspector, and certified refrigeration materials handler.
