How many years do you need of auto mechanics do you need to become a mechanic?
I want to do auto mechanics as my vocation for the last two years of my high school career. I heard somewhere that you need that AND two more years in a, auto mechanics school. Is that true? I thought that once you did vocational school, you were about ready for the job, except for maybe extra practice hours and a bit more training. Can you guys clear this up for me?
