Certification, Licensing, and Special Requirements

Certification or Licensing

There is no licensing or certification required for automotive teachers. Many teachers, though, earn certification from the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence in one or more of 15 areas such as alternate fuels, advanced engine performance, damage analysis, collision repair, and engine repair. Those who become certified in multiple areas are known as master mechanics. The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards offers voluntary national certification. Contact the board for information on eligibility criteria.
