Brandon’s Answer

Yes, you will need to take the ASVAB (armed services vocational aptitude battery) test which will help determine your specialty. Assuming you test well in that area you can easily become a mechanic. One question you will need to ask yourself is what type of mechanic do you want to be: airplane, auto, other vehicle?

Brandon recommends the following next steps:

Go to your local recruiter's office
Explain your career path
Sign up for the ASVAB

Jennifer’s Answer

Absolutely! My son is in the army and has a friend that is a mechanic. My nephew also completed his education for diesel mechanics through a running start program at a local technical college while he was still in high school. Both are great options. There is a huge need for mechanics that make this a great career with good pay. If you are interested in going military I second Brandon's answer to talk with a local recruiter. They can give you great advice on making the most of your decision.

Angelica’s Answer

There are already some great answers here, but the short is answer is you absolutely can get a job as a mechanic in the military depending on your ASVAB score. There isn't really a particular method to study for the ASVAB, but there is a website and some helpful resources such as sample questions to help you familiarize yourself with it at https://www.officialasvab.com/. Definitely do some research on which branch you think would be a best fit for the experience you are looking to get and then get in contact with a recruiter.

James’s Answer

Yes. Firstly, it depends on what branch you want to join. Next, it depends on how you perform on your ASVAB test. Mechanics require certain minimum scores. Then, decide which kind of mechanic you want to be. I know in my branch, the Marine Corps, that you can be a Motor Transport Mechanic or an Aviation Mechanic. Both are challenging and rewarding in their own way. They both transfer well into civilian careers. Best of luck with your decision and research.
