Hi Brooklyn,

I learning to be a mechanic to have a stable job, while continuing your education is a great idea. Mechanics will always be in demand and should offer some flexibility on the hours you work to continue studies evenings/weekends, etc. Automotive technology continues to become more and more complex, so combining mechanic work with say a degree in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering or Computer Science might be a few options. You'll need to be highly disciplined to work and continue studies, but I'm confident that you have the energy and dedication to be successful in this long-term project.

Bill recommends the following next steps:

Talk to your guidance counselor at school
Reach out to a local Community College and setup a meeting with an advisor
Consider things that really appeal to you, so work is very enjoyable

Davidson County Community College has several options. Check your local community college, you'll get the education you need at a fraction of the cost of private tech schools. https://www.davidsonccc.edu/
