First, you got your driver’s licence; then you got a car. Now you’re spending every spare moment with your head under the hood and all of your money on new parts. Sound familiar? What if you could turn your obsession into a career?
As an Automotive Service Technician, you will work in a garage or on a factory floor with vehicles of all shapes and sizes—everything from a vintage roadster to an electric Tesla, and even light trucks. Every vehicle is a bit different and it’s up to you to quickly isolate the problem, find a solution and send drivers safely on their way.
