Various suppliers provide this list of tools and a roller cabinet at a
discounted price range of $1,500.00 – $3,000.00. These discounted

If you decide to purchase tools and a toolbox without using financial aid, you may use any tool vendor that can provide the required tools and box size listed on the AST required tool list.

A bookstore deferment system is in place for students who qualify for financial aid to purchase the required tools and tool box for the program. The deferment can be used at the College bookstore 30 days prior to the start of the school year. The bookstore tool set and box is from a preselected vendor.
