Because vehicle technology is far more sophisticated than in years past, people who wish to work in the automobile service industry should complete formal training, as well as receive intern training from experienced workers. ASE (National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence) certification is required in most shops today. AYES (Automotive Youth Education Service) is a partnership between high school automotive programs, manufacturers and dealers and is certified by ASE. Entry-level technician positions are filled by these well-prepared students.
Intensive career preparation can be received in post-secondary training programs. These programs are frequently updated to keep up with the constantly changing automotive industry, and technicians are constantly trained to stay abreast of new models and equipment changes. Some manufacturers send factory representatives to independent shops & dealerships to provide training programs for upgrading technician skills.
One of the most challenging duties of an automotive technician is to diagnose hard-to-find automotive problems. Automotive repair shop owners seek employees who have good communication and analytical skills. Technicians must be able to read & evaluate technical manufacturer manuals, operate high-tech electronic equipment, as well as be proficient at computer software.
ASE Certification is the standard credential for automotive repair technicians today. ASE Master Certification is obtainable only after rigorous training in most automotive systems, two years experience in each system and completion of the Certification Examination. Technicians who demonstrate administrative, leadership and customer service abilities may advance to the position of manager or service advisor.
Our Auto Repair Technicians are Highly Trained!
Auto repair technicians inspect, diagnose, maintain and repair gas, diesel and hybrid autos and trucks. Their responsibilities have definitely changed from performing simple mechanical repairs to high-tech, highly complicated procedures.
Today's sophisticated automobiles require technicians who are specially trained to use computerized shop equipment and electronic along with traditional hand tools. Technicians use a variety of tools such as: power tools, such as pneumatic wrenches; machine tools like lathes and grinding machines; welding and flame-cutting equipment, jacks and hoists; and common hand tools, such as screwdrivers, pliers, and wrenches. Most technicians have thousands of dollars invested in a wide selection of hand tools, personally selected to fit their own unique working style. Most employers furnish the most expensive power tools, engine analyzers, and other high-tech diagnostic equipment.
Some of our equipment looks like the dashboard of a jumbo jet airliner - but our expert ASE Certified Master Technicians know what all those digital readouts mean. They are specially trained to know how to interpret what your car is telling them and they know how to fix it. Is your car having driveability problems? Diagnosis is our specialty. Our techs won't stop until they find the problem - and then they fix it!
State of the Art Equipment & Tools
Technicians must have an increasingly broad knowledge of how today's vehicles' integrated electronic systems and complex computers work together. With electronic diagnostic equipment and digital manuals and reference materials at their disposal, today's technicians are required to complete rigorous continual training and testing.
Service Advisors are especially skilled at receiving and processing information about mechanical troubles and write a repair order. These repair orders give repair technicians a detailed description of a vehicle's issues, along with relevant information about the vehicle. The technician then locates the problem using a diagnostic approach. Using a variety of testing equipment, including onboard and hand-held diagnostic computers or compression guages, the technician is able to isolate the components or systems that might be the cause of the issues.
Technicians test and lubricate engines, major components, repair or replace worn parts and follow an inspection checklist to reduce or eliminate possible breakdowns. Belts, hoses, plugs, brake and fuel systems, and other potentially troublesome automotive systems are inspected thoroughly.
Most auto repair shops have computerized diagnostic testing devices with manufacturer benchmarked standards. These standards reveal important information to technicians and help technicians diagnose vehicle problems. With technical service bulletins, manuals, Internet resources and software packages, technicians are given valuable information about common problems and procedures for today's high-tech vehicle equipment.
Computers and electronic components primarily control everything in today's automobiles from the radio to the engine. Some vehicles integrate global positioning into their systems, which require high-tech tolls and up-to-date training and skills for today's technicians. As more alternative fuel vehicles roll down the road, technicians have to learn how they operate to be able to perform repairs.
Some auto repair shops specialize in their own specific niche, such as brake repairs or transmission repairs which require specialized training and preparation. Air conditioning repair technicians must have training in Federal and State regulations regarding the disposal of refrigerants. Special wheel-balancing and alignment equipment is required for those who specialize in aligning and balancing wheels.
