providing real world experience
“Our students get real world experience in our ‘live shop’, Providing actual repair diagnosis, work order preparation and client interaction.”
– Earl Ortiz, Automobile Service Technology Instructor
That means many of today’s mechanics are not trained to repair them. Today’s vehicles run on complex computer systems. The technical equipment to work on them is highly sophisticated; skill with a wrench has been replaced with computer skills. There has never been more demand for well-trained, diagnostic technicians.
If you have a passion for cars and trucks and want to work in a rapidly growing industry, consider a career as an Automotive Service Technician. There are more than 700,000 Automotive Service Technicians in the United States who perform a variety of duties ranging from vehicle inspection and repair to safety compliance.
