Employment Outlook

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more entry-level service technicians will be needed to do basic maintenance and repair as the number of vehicles continues to grow. The increasing life-span of late-model cars and light trucks will further increase the demand. Because of the complexity of modern vehicles, motorists will need a skilled technician to make repairs and adjustments rather than doing it themselves. This field is very rewarding – great satisfaction comes from solving the problems and restoring the vehicle to proper operating condition.
