Professional Automotive Technician Advice.... from Eric The Car Guy.
Listen to Eric explain important details on becoming an Auto Technician including ASE certification. He speaks very candidly and fills in all the answers that you're looking for. The main point he makes is "go to a tech school!". I like his statement on finding a shop that will provide upgrading and help you advance in the trade. Check out the video if you're thinking about the automotive technician trade or ready to go full throttle, you'll find some great insight from an experienced mechanic who has been through it already.
