Auto mechanic classes can be taken at technical and community colleges as a part of both educational and vocational programs. While the material in auto mechanic training programs varies between schools, virtually all programs include courses in engine service, brake service, electric systems and automotive steering. Most auto mechanic classes include extensive lab work, so that students can gain hands-on experience in servicing vehicles.
Here are some common concepts taught in auto mechanic classes:
