Auto Mechanic and Automotive Schools in Idaho

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) notes employers in the automotive repair and service industry tend to favor candidates who have formal training. In Idaho, auto mechanic schools are a great option to gain the education and hands-on experience you need. Most programs traditionally last between six months and one year. However, two-year programs that result in an associate's degree are also available. For working professionals, online education programs offer flexibility and an opportunity to complete a diploma or certificate while still working.

From automotive technology to diesel technology, automotive HVAC to collision and repair, auto mechanic schools in Idaho offer a wide array of training areas. After completing your education you can count part of your time spent towards the two-year minimum work experience requirement for Automotive Service Excellence Certification.
