Resources for Students at Auto Tech Schools

Aug 17, 2007
If you are seeking a career in the automotive industry, going to school is an excellent way to break into the field. Auto tech schools offer a number of resources for students, helping them to find a job after graduation, or even while still in school. Read on to discover a few of the benefits you will enjoy as a student at an automotive school.

Experienced teachers
Most auto tech schools hire only the best teachers. In order to ensure their teachers really know the subject material, they look for those with automotive degrees and/or real working automotive experience. As a result, you can rest assured that your teachers are some of the best resources available to you as you learn the ropes of the field.

Strong mentoring programs
Many automotive programs understand the value of a mentor as a student gains an education and work experience. Therefore, many schools will set up a mentoring program, between new students and more experienced students, or simply between students and experienced members of the industry.

Broad availability of internships
Another advantage offered by auto tech schools is the availability of internships. Most automotive schools maintain ongoing working relationships with local automotive businesses, enabling them to quickly and easily place students in internships. Internships benefit students by providing valuable on the job training, and some even give students credit toward their degree.

Guaranteed job placement
Many programs will guarantee job placement after graduation. Job placement services are one of the many benefits a high quality, established automotive school can offer. Between the connections the school has with local shops, garages, and dealerships, and the aid of the school's best resume writers, students should have no trouble finding work in this competitive field.

Solid school reputation
One of the benefits to attending one of the top auto tech schools is that you carry with you the value of their reputation, every time you present your resume or tell a customer where you learned your trade. The presence of a top school on your resume could even make the difference between landing a job and losing it to another candidate. Therefore, a school's reputation must be counted among one of the resources it offers you as a graduate.

Financial aid
Going to school is a financial burden for many people, but it doesn't have to stop you from getting the education you want and need. Many facilities will offer financial aid for students who cannot easily afford to put themselves through school. Financial aid is therefore a resource that makes an education possible for many people for whom it would not have been otherwise.

There are many more resources that auto tech schools can offer to their students, but the above resources are the most common. If you are unsure what resources a certain educational program can offer to you, the best way to find out is to browse the school's website or contact them directly.
