Tips About Becoming a Mechanic
If you’re still in high school, take auto repair, electronics, and math to prepare. Trade schools require a high school diploma or GED.
Go to a trade school or community college and enroll in their mechanics program. Get that degree to become fully qualified as an auto mechanic.
Get as many ASE certifications as you can, especially those related to your specialization.
Potential employers prefer their mechanics to have had a higher level of training from a trade school or community college. But I guess you already know that and that’s why you’re here.
