Auto technicians requiring more computer background

With the more sophisticated engines being built for vehicles, auto technicians require substantially more training and education than years ago, according to a local car dealer.  Pete Beane, who owns Jorns Chevrolet in Kewaunee says the technology under the hood is more challenging than ever for auto repair.



Auto mechanics require substantial training especially for franchise dealers like GM, Ford, and Chrysler.  Employment of automotive service technicians and mechanics is projected to grow 6 percent by 2026.  The average auto tech makes an annual medium income of about $36,000, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
