Combine your interest in mechanics with a working knowledge of electronics and computers to be an automotive service technician. You’ll do preventative maintenance, diagnose faults and repair automotive vehicles and light trucks.
Being an apprentice means you learn on the job as well as during the required training periods. An automotive service technician’s apprenticeship period is four years including a minimum of 1,500 hours of on-the-job training and eight weeks of technical training each year.
