Could Your Future Hold?
Technicians are in greater demand than ever before. There are six million (6,000,000) more
cars on the road than there were 10 years ago, but the number of trained technicians has
decreased by over 90,000.
And, the job itself has
changed dramatically. No more shade tree mechanics. Today's automotive technician is a
highly trained and skilled individual. To repair today's cars, technicians must be able to
interpret hundreds of thousands of pages of service manuals on computer by roaming
extensive CD-ROM libraries.
Here are some of your
- Automotive Service

- Aircraft Mechanic
- Race Team Pit Crew
