Jason’s Answer

mostly science and psychics, you need to understand how things are put together and visualize potential problems. math is important because there are a lot of conversion charts for torque, PSI, horsepower, gear ratios, etc... and if you can do the math it's a lot easier. english is actually important too because some of those tech manuals look like they were written by clowns that never took english and you have to decipher them.

Daniel’s Answer

I would recommend a trade class such as welding and also anything in electrical. Secondly, a mechanic in racing teams is what I would recommend you. Racing teams for off road baja teams, Nascar, and so many more out there exist. Do not limit your potential to just cars.

Andre’s Answer

It's important to have a GED at the least, but a high school diploma would be preferable. Many technical schools and community/state colleges offer 1 and 2 year automotive repair programs. I went to Seminole State College of Florida and attained my AAS in Automotive Technology while enrolled in the General Motors ASEP program. ASEP is a two-year program that prepares students for a career as a General Motors dealership service technician. Modern vehicles are complex and require lots of technical skill, especially electrical skills. Those who have a good work ethic and a strong desire to learn can do well in this field. It's not always going to be easy. But if you have a passion for it, it will likely pay off.

I would also look into going to a local community college and look and see what kind of Auto courses they have. Go to local mechanics ask them what did you do to get into this line of work.

Travis recommends the following next steps:
