Those who would like to take up a position in the field of automotive technology should not only exhibit a passion for all things vehicular, but also a knack for learning and mastering technological practices and vocabulary. Often called automotive technicians, professionals in this sector train rigorously in order to assess, diagnose, repair, and maintain a variety of different types of automobiles. Frequently, these technicians can find work with auto repair facilities, improving the quality of cars and trucks that are owned either privately or commercially. Alternatively, automotive technicians can also seek out employment from manufacturing companies or institutions to improve the quality of already produced vehicular products.

In order to properly prepare for automotive technology, those interested in the field should seek out high quality education. This training is available at both the high school and postsecondary level. These educational programs can last anywhere from six months to three full years in order to complete them. No matter the educational pathway, all automotive technicians are generally expected to pass through a process of apprenticeship with more experienced staff , with a focus on practical and on-the-job working experiences. Certification for automotive technicians is not required. However, those who would like to secure a job position with more ease, or who envision themselves escalating through a company via promotions, are highly advised to seek out the proper certification. The NIASE provides for many categories of certification: brake systems, engine repair, suspension and steering, heating and air conditioning, electrical systems, collision repair, and alternative fuels are among the most popular offerings. Each certification area requires two years of work experience in the area in addition to passing the exam; applicants can use their training to supplement for one of the two required experience years. It takes around five years to become fully adept in the field.

This website offers school details to prospective students as an informational resource. The appearance of a school listing on this website should not be interpreted as an endorsement by the school of this site.

This website also offers school data. With the exception of the recommend rate percentage (which is the average based on the student reviews submitted to our partner site GradReports), all of the data was collected in 2014-2016 from the National Center for Education Statistics or from an official representative of the school. The NCES is the primary governmental entity for gathering and presenting data related to education. The NCES data is updated annually as soon as it becomes available. The NCES does not release data into downloadable formats until it has been approved, so the most currently available data will not be for the most recent academic year. Salaries and job growth were collected in 2016-2017 from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Financial aid information applies to those students who qualify for financial aid.

Colleges and Degrees takes no position with respect to the information or opinions expressed in the user comments/reviews and is not responsible for their content.

Our tuition numbers reflect data collected from the National Center for Education Statistics.

Recommendation rate refers to the percent of students who said they would recommend this school based on reviews submitted to our partner site, GradReports.com.
This indicates that a school has an annual tuition of $15,000 or less as reported to the National Center for Education Statistics or based on the school's website.
