The college will prepare them
for any aspect
in the automotive field.
We want people in this field
that like to learn.
The olden days of just turning wrenches
is kind of gone.
You have to know
how to operate computer systems
and work on the computer systems
because everything’s computer-based.
The students need to be prepared
for what’s in the future
and we have that right now.
The technical colleges are prepared
and we understand
what students are going to need.
The instructors here,
we actually have the real-life experience
so it’s easy to teach the students
what they need to know
when they go out into the field.
For the most part, we had stuff here
that I probably won’t see
for another ten years.
You were ahead of actually what you
would be out in the field.
Probably the biggest thing
about being an automotive technician
is you’re never stuck in one place.
I mean, if I wanted to go to Europe
and become a mechanic today,
there’s always going to be room for that.
You’re never not going to have a job, really.
