Have you ever felt like you couldn't sit still to read the newspaper front to back, but you could spend hours working with your hands and not even notice the time flying by? If so, mechanic schools can give you the excitement your personality craves. For those who find themselves drawn to the intricacies and potential of automotive mechanics, motorcycle mechanics, marine mechanics, and NASCAR mechanics, opportunities to grow and flourish within automotive mechanic schools are plentiful.
But you already knew that, didn't you? According to Automotive Retailing Today, a consortium of all vehicle manufacturers and major auto dealer associations, over the next decade, there will be an estimated 31,900 new jobs available for high-paying auto technician jobs – that is, with those who have been trained at mechanic schools. Add to that tens of thousands more for sales, finance, and other automotive careers.
You read right -- employment of automotive service technicians and mechanics is expected to increase 10 to 20 percent through the year 2012, reports the U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Over the 2002-2012 period, population growth will boost demand for motor vehicles, which will require regular maintenance and service – from those who have automotive technology training.
Not only is the automotive industry experiencing a boom in general, but particular fields are seeing a rise in popularity. Motorcycle mechanics training is flourishing as well, especially with the support of major manufacturers like Harley-Davidson, Honda, Suzuki, Kawasaki, and Yamaha. If you're interested in marine mechanics, specific programs are available that can educate you as to all aspects of rebuilding, troubleshooting, and repairing marine engines and products. And you'd be hard-pressed to find a more thrilling field than NASCAR mechanics. Fortunately NASCAR-specific courses are available at mechanic schools, so your training is as focused as you need it to be.
Automotive mechanic schools are the perfect way to get started on your fast-paced, lucrative career. See you on the road.
