A high school diploma is the minimum requirement to land a job
that offers growth possibilities, a good salary, and challenges. In
addition to automotive and shop classes, high school students
should take mathematics, English, and computer classes. Adjustments
and repairs to many car components require the mechanic to make
numerous computations, for which good mathematical skills will be
essential. Diesel mechanics must be voracious readers in order to
stay competitive; there are many must-read volumes of repair
manuals and trade journals. Computer skills are also important, as
computers are common in most repair shops.
