Why is becoming an Automotive Technician is a great career choice?
Simply put, there’s a shortage of qualified Automotive Technicians and it is having a significant impact of the automotive industry. Automotive Technicians are skilled, well paid and involved in technologically innovative and challenging work. Demand for qualified technicians is growing at a significant rate because dealerships cannot find the skilled workforce they need.
