A mechanic works on automobiles, trucks and related transportation, and material-moving vehicles. Until some mad scientist develops a little machine for home mechanics to clone repair parts using recycled plastic bottles and metal cans, powered by scampering cockroaches or little solar panels, true repairs will be the exception. Experience: At least four years of successful experience in one of the mechanical trades is required. The technology used in automobiles changes very rapidly and the mechanic must be prepared to learn these new technologies and systems.
Motorcycle mechanics are very busy doing diagnostic and repair work in the warmer months and may encourage customers to have preventative maintenance work done in the winter. These are a few of the courses you will take in the Industrial Mechanic program. Here’s how Auto Mechanics job satisfaction is rated in terms of upward mobility, stress level and flexibility.
New technologies, however, such as electric vehicles, may limit future demand for automotive service technicians and mechanics because they will be more reliable and thus require less maintenance and repair. The artillery mechanic is primarily responsible for supervising and performing maintenance and recovery operations of all self-propelled field artillery cannon weapon systems—including automotive, turret, fire control and chemical protection subsystems. Employment of automotive service technicians and mechanics is projected to grow 5 percent from 2014 to 2024, about as fast as the average for all occupations.

Diesel mechanics work on vehicles that require diesel fuel, which includes buses, trucks, railroad locomotives and some automobiles. You can become a master mechanic by being certified in all eight automotive specialty areas offered by the ASE.
Bravo to the modern-day mechanical Michelangelo who created this wonderful bit of whimsy. The courses in this short-term technical diploma are tied to The Association of Packaging and Processing Technologies (PMMI) Certification – Level 1 tests – Industrial Electricity 1, Fluid Power 1, Programmable Logic Controllers 1, and Mechanical Components 1. Motorcycle mechanics who maintain and repair motorcycles, scooters and mopeds, averaged $34,190 per year.
