///    Connecticut Auto Mechanic Schools

In Connecticut, auto mechanic schools offer training in the diagnosis and repair of automobiles, trucks and motorcycles. Programs typically take between six months and a year to complete, but some community colleges offer two-year associate degree programs. Employed mechanics may value the flexibility of online education to gain training in advanced specialties such as brakes and suspensions, automotive HVAC, body repair, and fuel systems.
