Employment Outlook

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, more entry-level service technicians will be needed to do basic maintenance and repair as the number of vehicles continues to grow. The increasing life-span of late-model cars and light trucks will further increase the demand. Because of the complexity of modern vehicles, motorists will need a skilled technician to make repairs and adjustments rather than doing it themselves. This field is very rewarding – great satisfaction comes from solving the problems and restoring the vehicle to proper operating condition.

When Can I Start?

Bridgerland Technical College is open year round. Most programs are open-entry, which means you can start the program at the first of every month as long as there is space available in the program. Because of demand, some programs have waiting lists to get in to the program. Please contact Student Services for information on those programs with waiting lists and defined starting dates.
