Our coursework can prepare you for an exciting career in an industry that’s on the rise, and Automotive Training Center could be the key to a career as a qualified automotive, diesel, hi-performance, collision, or marine technician.
We want nothing more than for you to have a job you love going to each and every day. There are numerous career paths for people out there these days, but the automotive, diesel, hi-performance, collision, and marine fields are exciting, and many are choosing to jumpstart their careers in one of these fields. Learn more about why technicians are in-demand in 2019 and how our curriculum makes an impact.
Exploring a Career in the Automotive Industry
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, automotive service technician employment is expected to grow about six percent from 2016 through 2026, making it an attractive option. Entry-level technicians will be needed to provide automotive repair and maintenance like oil changes, brake pad replacements, and tire rotations. Emerging technology is requiring many technicians to be well-versed in complex electrical and diesel systems, too.
It’s important to remember one thing about why these careers are in-demand: These types of jobs are essentially impossible to outsource. When a car needs repair, it’s not going to another country to be fixed. When a boat needs repair, a marine technician is handling those repairs here, not elsewhere.
The average driver will visit the dealership they purchased it from or a local auto repair shop to complete the repairs. While the engineers and technicians building the car may be from another country, the technicians repairing it are found here in the U.S.
