Set yourself apart from others in your industry and get trained to repair electric cars. Electric cars are more common today than ever before and the Richmond market has been chosen to roll out several models of electric vehicles from manufacturers including Ford, Chevrolet and Nissan. With the right education, “green” technology could mean more “green” in your wallet, as studies have shown auto repair technicians with a college degree earn nearly twice as much as those without a degree.
We know more electric cars are coming to the Richmond market. We know car owners and auto repair businesses are going to need technicians to service and fix them. Are you going to be qualified to gain the job or promotion to work on these cars, or are you going to be left in the dust?
