Today is

The work of an automotive service technician and mechanic has evolved from simply mechanical to high technology.

Today integrated auto electronic systems and complex computers run vehicles and measure their performance while on the road. Automotive service technicians have developed into diagnostic, high-tech problem solvers. Technicians must have an increasingly broad base of knowledge about how vehicles' complex components work and interact, as well as the ability to work with electronic diagnostic equipment and computer-based technical reference materials.

Job Highlights for Auto Mechanics Formal automotive mechanical technician training is the best preparation for these challenging technology-based jobs. Opportunities should be very good for automotive service technicians and auto mechanic with good diagnostic and problem-solving skills and knowledge of auto electronics and mathematics. Automotive service technicians and mechanics must continually adapt to changing technology and repair techniques as vehicle components and systems become increasingly sophisticated.
