Today, mechanics are not like those from 5 years ago. The training required to keep vehicles on the road incredible. The auto industry is moving very quickly with technology, and so is the training that mechanics are engaging in. For example, blue tooth technology had only just been introduced a few years ago, but now, it’s in most new vehicles.
Voice activation, navigation equipment, electric cars and hybrids are all new technologies, so mechanics are continually learning. Even diesel vehicles are different today; they are more efficient and cleaner.
Much of this advanced training is offered by dealerships, and manufacturers often send representatives to be trained. Other training methods include web-based classes and videos. Also, when classes are offered at local colleges, many auto shops send their mechanics. As such, the auto industry itself is providing open opportunities for students.
America is producing very competent mechanics and technicians with specific manufacturer training and a strong background of fundamentals. While they are learning, many students work part-time in auto shops or dealerships, and after graduation, they move to full-time. Right now, trained mechanics are in high demand because they can operate the latest fracking equipment, generators, pumps and other state-of-the-art technologies.
