Should you go to Automotive Tech School!


alright I’m the fly rape master and today we’re talking about tech school now we’re going to start a whole series on this so this is just the beginning this number one we’re going to talk about tech school do you need it if you’re going to work all you want to do for a job is change oil do quick services tires no not really I mean that stuff you can easily learn on the job Jiffy Lube will hire you Walmart will hire you you you know you don’t need to know how a engine works to change the oil if you want to just swap parts you just want to pull a car in rip off the alternator put it you know put a new one on stuff like that no I mean you can learn that on the job you can learn all that stuff pretty easily heck you can watch YouTube and do it but if you want to diag that alternator you probably going to need some school one of the biggest things that will help you get started in this industry is a degree from a automotive tech school either community college or one of the big schools that are advertised on TV without a you know degree shops are going to look at you and go no not going to waste my time on some do yourself or the things he can be a professional now I want to say this for all the haters that are going to write in the comments you’re not coming out of tech school billing 70 hours a week making $100,000 a year it’s just BS going to take you several years this is an experience based industry it’s going to take you a while to get up there it’s you’re going to have to take your the stuff you learned in tech school and turn it into practical knowledge so I just want to put that little disclaimer in here that you know there’s caveats to getting an education well let’s say you want to do heavy line you know engines transmissions stuff like that you just want to pull big parts out of cars put big parts back in in case you guys don’t know that’s what heavy line is heavy no you’re going to need an education because what happens if you put that engine back in and it doesn’t run or sets check engine light or that transmission doesn’t work you’re going to need to figure out what’s wrong in order to correct it whether you screwed something up you got a bad part you’re not going to have the knowledge to be able to fix it at that point if you don’t have the background knowledge now I know a lot of guys going to go well I learned you know I went to a shop they hired me to sweep the floors and I learned a bunch of stuff and yes it’s possible but very difficult in this time in this day and age to do that anymore because so few shops are willing to take that risk I mean you’re talking about a tech that could you know have a car that’s you know battery’s dead so they go out there with a jump box and put connected backwards and now the shops buying modules or even just a really expensive multi pack fuse so there’s very few shops that are going to be willing to take that risk on a somebody just off the street the other thing when I’ve seen I can’t tell you how many times I’ve met texts that have come up that way and so much of their knowledge is wrong or bad because they’ve learned from guys that came up that way and they’ve learned a lot of bad information so it can be a good way if you get into the right shop with the right mentor that’s willing to educate you on all those basics that you’ll build on and that’s one of the biggest things about going to tech school and I’m going to get into a lot of that in other videos in this series but you have to remember you know you’re going to go to tech school and you’re going to learn not only learn how a system works how to fix it but also the diagnostic end of it the how to figure out what’s broke you know you’re going to go through and learn a lot of boring stuff and your electrical classes Ohm’s law what’s Ohm’s law well if you don’t know what Ohm’s law is it is a really important thing to know when you’re working in the field as a tech because you deal with it day in day out now I know a lot of guys are going well when I was in high school they taught me all the stuff that I will never use what am I going to need to know who the 12th President of the United States was well let’s you go on to jeopardy or something like that probably not but you go to tech school that stuff is things you will need to know every day of your working life you will need to know things like Ohm’s law how a circuit work how a you know electrical circuit works how a ABS system raise you will need to know all of that every day so going to tech school is a very good option as far as learning all those basics that you will put to use every day of your life so if you want to do electrical work you want to diagnose check engine lights deal with can networks you’re going to need that foundation that a tech a good tech school is going to provide you working and learning is is great because if you don’t learn it as business you’re just you know you might as well retire I learn almost daily if not daily and it might be something about how a different system works I mean in your information system there’s tons of information on how systems work but if you don’t understand how the basic end of the system works you won’t be able to diagnose it so you’ve got to have that foundation so going to tech school even a bad tech school is going to be better than no education at all simply because hopefully you will learn even if you wind up going and just researching it yourself you will learn a lot of stuff that you can’t easily pick up in the field very quickly because you’ve got to work that’s one of the biggest things about working in this industry is it’s go go go go go you know the next car the next car the next car well you get stuck you got to call in the master tech and he just straight up takes it over because he’s got work to do and you wind up not really learning a whole lot because you don’t have time so I hope you liked the video I know it’s you know not always the easiest thing to hear but if you want to get into this business you really do need that education if you want to do anything above very basic basic repairs so if you liked the video give me a thumbs up subscribe hit the bell notification so you get notified when I put out a new video you didn’t like the video you know like what I had to say give me a thumbs down but I am the flyer a master and as always thanks for watching
