Interesting question, Kyaw!

Below is a link to recommendations from Edmunds, which has expertise in car pricing. It makes sense to me that several colleges/universities listed are in the Midwest (especially Michigan) because several major car companies are based there. This would facilitate internships, which would help your career as well as your education. Below that is a link to a Princeton Review list. Princeton Review is known primarily for preparing students for standardized testing, but their perspective is credible.

There are many other lists, but I can't vouch for the sources, so I didn't include them. It might help if you compare multiple lists and see which institutions show up frequently in the top 10 or 20. Also compare to your general preferences, e.g., part of the country, large or small, costs, etc. I would strongly encourage you to visit, attend information sessions, and go on tours of at least a few. Being there will both demonstrate your interest (a key factor for admission officers) and help you refine your decisionmaking.

Good luck!

TRAVIS’s Answer

You are in the right spot as a Job Corps student to get automotive training. It is important to keep up good attendance and disciplinary records from the start of your training. This will allow you to be able to attend the advanced training you are seeking. I do not know which job corps you are enrolled at, but they may offer basic automotive training. Once you earn an academic credential (GED or High School Diploma) and get a drivers license and complete a basic vocation (preferably in automotive) you can be eligible for Advanced Training either at a local college or transfer to a Job Corps that offers Advanced Training in Automative. Two Job Corps offer advanced training. Those are Clearfield JCC in Utah or Earle C Clements in Kentucky. If your current Job Corps has a Adanced College Training option, you can enroll at the college, while still enjoying the benefits of the Job Corps. You have 3 yrs from start to finish to complete your basics (2yrs) and extra year (3yrs total) for advanced training. You could complete your basics in 1yr and spend the next two on advanced training or completing a college associated degree. Be sure to ask you counselor and or vocational instruction about your options. If there is no college program, work on getting transfers to Clearfield or Earle C Clements JCC. Good luck, you will do well.
