Automotive Careers

Automotive careers may become very lucrative. Few people who own cars know how to repair their vehicles, thus they must rely on auto mechanics. The advantage of an automotive career is that a good mechanic will never go out of business. People will always have cars that need repairing. In most cases, these individuals are willing to pay good money in order to have their vehicles repaired quickly.

Those who begin an automotive career should take courses in high school to prepare them. Some high school's offer programs in automotive repair. These courses may be offered through a vocational program in which students would spend approximately three hours a day in an automotive class. This instruction will equip students for entering the automotive field and will allow them to begin making small car repairs.

High school students who take courses in automotive repair are generally able to change a tire, oil, brake pads, car battery, and so forth. This education will open the door for new high school graduates to obtain entry level automotive careers. Many auto repair shops are willing to train mechanics. The new mechanic may begin by performing routine car repairs without supervision. As larger repair jobs become available, the new mechanic may assist a seasoned mechanic.

In addition, those who want to begin an automotive career can attend courses at a community college or training school. These college courses are designed to prepare auto mechanics for receiving certification. Some automotive shops are willing to pay for a mechanic's training if they agree to work for the repair shop once they complete training and certification.

Being employed by a stable auto repair shop is ideal for those beginning an automotive career. However, to earn a substantial income, mechanics should consider opening their own auto repair shop. Most repair men who work for shops are paid an hourly salary, while the shop owner takes a huge cut of the profit. Many qualified mechanics operate repair shops from their home garages. This is ideal because it allows flexibility, low overhead cost, and the mechanic keeps most of the profits.
