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?
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!
This question is for my research paper. I need to know what jobs women are not allowed to pursue such as being in the front-line in war. Same goes for men, what jobs are they not allowed?
Note: this question pertains to jobs in America meaning please do not give me a job in a different country other than America
What careers and pay range can you look forward to with a degree in automotive technian training?
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?
I'm an automotive paint technician with over 10 years experience as well as body repair skills from the US and I would like to move to Australia. My question is what kind of salary could I expect to make there? Here in the US I can earn between $40,000 and $65,000 a year.
I have a wife and young daughter so I need to make sure I would be able to support our family on the average pay there.
I need help with this
Would you make more at a dealership, or for a person who run there own business. I know the amount of money you make depends on where you live. I live in texas, but I'm willing to go other places. I don't know if this helps, but I want to go to UTI.
Would I need to know how to repair brakes and suspension problems?
What kind of jobs can it get you, or also what kind of courses can you take from it

Why do cars suck? Why is it that when you put a hairline scratch (which could probably be fixed with White-Out) in a car's bumper it can cost you hundreds of dollars to get it fixed? Why are car's bumpers made of rubber?
I was thinking of going to school to become an automotive service technician and I wanted to ask people who have experience in this field. Would you describe it as hard, frustrating work or not? Also, what kind of hours do mechanis work?
Are there any good careers out there that only require a 2yr degree? If so what are they and what degree do I need? I am looking for a career that can earn between 45000 and 65000 per year. Thank you for the help.
I recently hit a pole/column in a parking garage driving my Scion tC. I have gotten estimates around $1600 to replace a fender, the front bumper, and one of the headlights. I am wondering if it is a good idea to fix it myself (with the guidance of a friend who has mechanical knowledge)? According to the collision centers, my headlight should be replaced because the plastic tabs have been broken where the screws attach underneath the hood. But the light still works and only has minor scratches on the side, and I cannot see a reason why it is necessary to get it fixed right now. Should I purchase the parts myself , do the work myself, and just pay to have it painted??? Do I need to replace the light?
I don't mean like a mechanic. i'm looking for something like is it an auomotive engineer or what? can you please list some job titles having to do with cars.
