I was just wondering do you think its a good idea for women to be auto body technicians working on collision and paint repair. Do you think it is to hard for a women to do this job because of so many men that do it?
I am a stay home mother and homeschool educator. My husband says that I do have a considerable job on my hands with these tasks. I would like to show him how much my time is worth though. He is a auto body technician and says that he would be paid considerably more than I. Is there somewhere that I can find a way to break down what i do to add up a total price?
I am currently going to Universal Technical Institute and studying to be an auto mechanic but i am starting to think that i also have a big interest in auto body work. I dont want to just waste all the money im spending on school to not pursue auto mechanics at all but i think it wud be really cool if i could do a little of both and still make great money. I was thinking like an auto restoration technician, like restoring old classic cars. Any opinions?
My uncle is a auto body technician, and want's me to work with him . I am wanting to work there , but I don't understand how they pay? He tried to explain but it did not make since. What is Flag Pay, flag rate, whatever it is, please explain?
No, it's not flat rate! It is flagging hours for work, I was told that if a job payed 100 hours, you take each part of that pay untill it is gone, at so much. I have no idea, thats what my uncle told me, I don't get it. Way differant from flat pay!!!
Okay I'm starting to get it. Butt see my Uncle also wants to split 40-60?or pay, should I take the offer?
I am looking to go the school to work on cars, preferablly auto body repair. But I want to do what ever I can to become as Ultimately succesfull as I can. I've noticed that some schools have different classes for auto body and auto technican. what is the real difference? Isn't collision repair the same thing as auto technican.If not would I have to take both types of classes? Also is there a salary difference between the two? or does one have a better job outlook for the future?
Im currently taking auto collision in high school (well during high school) to get a job as body shop technician when im done high school. also im wondering how many years of extra schooling i would need in order to be making the big bucks lol. so thanks for the help
okay im in a class in high school which is auto collision i'm required to take it for two years. after high school whats next for training because i know it requires more to be a good technician
Im so confused on which school to choose from. I've narrowed it down to Lincoln Tech and Ivy Tech. I'd like to know which school would be better choice. Maybe someone who attended either one could give me some advice. If it helps I would take just the regular automotive classes with high performance at Lincoln Tech and maybe either a Associate of Applied Science Degree for Automotive Service or a Technical Certificate for Auto Service at Ivy Tech. OPIONS "ARE" WELCOME!
My husband wants to start college to get a career in automotive body repair but would like to specialize in motorcycles; body work, engines, etc.
Is there a specific course for this in Ontario or does he just take "Automotive Body&Repair/service technician" and branch out after that?
Well i want to be an auto mechanic but do i really need to graduate high school? I just want to work in one of those auto body shops and learn to fix a car and restore a car. I don't care how much i get paid i just want to do what i want to do which is learn to fix a car and use that skill to help others. Anyways, would i have to graduate? Or would it be possible to just learn about cars on my breaks and get jobs learning about how to fix cars?

I am finally getting my car back today after an entire ordeal with the person at fault's insurance company. That being said I just wanted to know if I should be looking for anything specific to tell if the repairs are of high quality. Any suggestions would help greatly, thanks!
