I am pro-education all the way. Howbeit, I only have a few college credits related to mechanical repair. Most of my early years were spent studying electrical engineering. I have business, and education degrees – not automotive. However, I have years of automotive and mechanical experience. Would I be hired as a mechanic? I doubt it, because I don’t have the specific educational requirements. There are several things for employers to consider, and shop insurance is one of them. In addition, many states require that you pass a Certified Mechanic Examination of your particular state in order to repair vehicles on your own. My belief is that those who want to be career mechanics will get some schooling to learn the trade. I passed an internet program, which has helped me write about Automobile Mechanics.
