FAQ: Getting Started In Auto Body Work

What Kind Of Training Do I Need?

Before anyone will hire you, they’ll want to be sure you have the proper experience to handle the job. As such, you need to demonstrate that you’ve been involved in an apprentice program or similar educational program.

What Should My Educational Background Consist Of?

Auto BodyThough you’ll get a better shot at landing a great job early if you complete your Associate’s Degree or certification program, it is entirely possible to find work in this field with only a high school diploma or GED. If you can show that you’ve actively tried to learn everything you can about the industry, employers will take that into account.

What Type Of Basic Skills Should I Focus On Developing?

In the auto body repair field, attention to detail and time management are essential. All the technical knowledge in the world won’t help you if you can’t effectively complete your tasks on schedule. Luckily, these skills are easy to learn with proper training.

How Can I Advance My Career?

Once you’ve landed your first job, enrolling in adult education programs is a great way to advance your career—aside from performing reliably and working your way up the ranks. This will illustrate to potential employers your dedication to the craft.
