Auto Mechanic and Automotive Schools in Iowa

Students can learn the basics of the automotive service and repair industry, such as diagnostics, engine management systems, automotive HVAC, transmissions and more from programs offered at auto mechanic schools. In Iowa, these programs typically take between six months and one year to complete. Blending both hands-on and classroom-based instruction, training at auto mechanic schools prepares students to work in each of the major areas of the industry: automotive, motorcycle and diesel technology. Online education programs are a good choice for working professionals who wish to obtain a certificate or degree while continuing to work.

Students attending Iowa auto mechanic schools may also consider pursuing advanced certification from the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). ASE certification is available in several areas, such as alternate fuels, truck equipment, collision repair, advanced engine performance and more.
