I am in the midst of trying to get an apprenticeship as an Automotive Service Technician in Alberta, Canada, and I would like to specialize in a particular brand of vehicle. So far I am considering BMW or perhaps Mercedes-Benz. However, I would be willing to apprentice with another make if it was worth it. Which company would be best to work for and provide the most opportunities? Please don't post hyper-biased opinions, but answers based on empirical evidence and experience would be best. Thank you!
Hey, im currently in highschool and i was interested in doing a coop as an automotive service technician or mechanic. I have always liked cars and i have been very interested, friends tell me when they started they didnt know much, but from your experience do you think a person could do a coop without very much prior knowledge about the particular job field?
thanks, any feedback you have is much appreciated
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?

I'm thinking of becoming a automotive technician but not so sure anymore. i know american automakers are hurting but will there still be good business with foreign dealerships and other jobs requiring auto technicians?
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!
What province, city, etc will give me highest chance of a job, and the highest pay?
I do not have a high school diploma, and want to get into the trades (auto mechanic). I already know a lot about cars and do under the table jobs with no tax paid, but I want a red seal. Is a GED good enough to get into a college that offers an apprenticeship program? Thanks everyone...
I am looking into learning a trade and I feel auto repair would be a great job. My local university teaches auto tech and gives certificates for it. Would that be a great route at landing a job and how much schooling do I need?
Also, is there any currently job available in london for 17 years old ?
After high school I'd like to be an automotive technician, but I'm undecided on which school I should attend when I graduate.

Thank you.

I'm a handy backyard mechanic, and I enjoy working on friend's vehicles to save them a small fortune. What if I wanted to take my little backyard hobby to the next level and perhaps get a job as a mechanic at a local garage?
Is there a test by the state (Michigan) to become licensed? Is that an easy or hard test? If I've read through an entire college textbook on car mechanics (about 1,000+ pages), I'm thinking it would be fairly easy for me to pass.
Im almost finished with the first of two years in my automotive degree. Im working at a shop currently, but I dont know if I want to turn wrenches for a living.

I've come across a couple of different job adds asking me to send a salary range along with my application. What is the proper way to go about this? Should it be in the form of a letter of interest or just a document listing the range. Also, I've always been told to avoid the question of salary range and let them put out the first number, how can I ensure I'm not low-balling myself?
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?
