YouTube Certified Mechanics


greetings viewers Aerith car guy here also known as eat ECG one when I post videos on this channel and if it is your birthday I want to wish you a very special happy birthday today’s topic of discussion comes from a little meme I guess you could call it that’s been sent to me several times fairly recently and that is YouTube’s certified mechanics so it’s an ASE symbol with YouTube certified underneath it and there are a lot of people out there that thought that was quite funny but it does bring up an interesting point and I don’t really want to shoot myself in the foot posting this video but I kind of kind of feel a me that it should be discussed anyway so I am as many of you know an ASE certified master technician that’s the reason why we have my accolades in the back there’s also an acura certification back there but as far as ASC is concerned I actually have to recertified magnets yep i recertified twice at this point so I’ve been a master technician for some time and working as a technician for some time which you know I suppose to some degree qualifies me to be a technician so the real focus of this video is basically on those individuals that are making comments the effect that they have knowledge of a particular subject or topic or something that is quote unquote automotive and this knowledge was gained from watching a youtube video so in other words it’s not gained by experience they’re not they’re not technicians they’re not mechanics they just watched a YouTube video and now they insist that they are correct in their opinion because the YouTube video says so now granted I get a lot of information from YouTube and videos in general I mean there’s a lot of them out there but as I as I’ve said I mean I work really hard to try to put out good useful information based on my own experience as a technician I try to put the good stuff out there but that’s not always what filters down and there’s a lot of videos on the internet and a lot of people making videos and repair videos and automotive type videos on the internet that may not necessarily be certified I’m not saying that you have to be certified in order to do repairs or make repair videos not saying that at all what I’m saying is is sometimes there’s a ignorant and ignorance is not that somebody is stupid it’s that somebody has a lack of knowledge or experience in something that’s the true definition of ignorance and that’s the definition I’m using here that’s where it becomes oil somewhat dangerous and it may have nothing to do with the YouTube videos or the people making the YouTube videos well I’m talking specifically about are those people that insist there that they’re right that they know what they’re talking about based solely on the fact that they’ve watched videos not that they have any experience or turned a wrench or done any of this stuff they’ve just they they’re formulating their opinions based on things that others have done and posted videos about that’s where my issue is because like I said earlier I don’t want to shoot myself in the foot because you know what do I do well I make repair videos for YouTube which I hope to empower people with I hope that they take whatever information I’m able to put into these videos and they’re able to apply it to their situation and perhaps fix their EGR or their tire or whatever it is that’s that’s my hope and that’s my goal when I post videos over on air at the car guy yeah what do you think our YouTube certified I mean how does how does that affect you how does that manifest in your world I realize it started out like I said as a joke that’s getting passed around but I think it’s the reason why it’s so poignant is because there’s a lot of that going around there is a lot of that around and I just I’ve given you my take on it how about yours that’s what those comments are for I’ll post links in the description to things that were discussed I’ll also put a link in the description to air at the cargo comm which is where I ask you go if you have automotive questions tons of resources there link in the description I hope it helps you additionally you will find links to my Google+ Facebook and Instagram which is where you can connect with me socially and I close each of my videos including EGCG ones with be safe have fun stay dirty thank you for watching I’ll see you next time [Music]
