Technological advances in the auto world spell out new prospects for repair technicians, especially those with certifications or specializations. That means thousands of job openings with potential for promotion from the training you’ll receive at TSTC.
Automobile dealerships and independent automotive repair facilities will create the most job opportunities. New jobs will appear in small retail operations offering oil changes, brake repair, air-conditioning service and other minor repairs that take less than four hours to complete.
What you’ll do!
The days of simple repairs for automotive service technicians are all but over. Now, thanks to advanced equipment, their jobs have moved from mechanical repairs to high-level technology-related work. Most vehicles are now run by integrated electronic systems and computers, which means auto technicians need to know these systems inside and out.
As an auto technician, you’ll give basic care maintenance, such as oil changes and tire rotations, and put your problem-solving skills to good use by diagnosing more complex problems. At TSTC you can learn to use computerized shop equipment with electronic components, as well as traditional hand tools.
