How to Turn your Passion for Cars into a Career

It is no doubt that cars have become a vital machine in modern society. Though for some, they are not only important machines but are wonderful puzzles with compelling mysteries yet to be solved. Just like any average person with a passion for cars, you might also be on the search for a way to make a career out of it. 

Mechanics are on demand. Fueled by Dubai’s strategic location on the map, it has become a hub for car trade. Let’s not forget the large society of car enthusiasts across UAE. All these combined clearly highlights the growing necessity for good mechanics. 

But how do you become one? Working in an automobile can make you responsible for repairing, maintaining, or testing the engines, transmissions, and other systems in the vehicle. You can also opt to specialize in learning on very specific vehicles. Take for example – classic cars. Mechanics who deal with these types of machines have spent a good amount of time and learning in understanding the specifications of such vehicles. 

But what are the characteristics of a good mechanic? This will help you assess yourself and keep track of important behaviors needed in the field. 

  • You can effectively use your hands in dismantling something and putting it back together. Not only that but also the talent of taking note of different mechanical parts. 

  • You must be physically fit. The work of dealing with cars can entail a lot of lifting or pushing. You can also be moving a lot since moving from one to the car to another will be a daily task. 

  • You love solving problems. The best mechanics have an innate nature of curiosity and drives satisfaction from being able to solve a puzzle. 

  • You are a people person. Mechanics are not always client facing but a well-rounded mechanic can effectively communicate automotive problems and enjoys dealing with people. 

We have identified the attributes you need to become a good mechanic so now, how do you become one? The first step is enrolling yourself in a reputable academy that will allow you to acquire the necessary certificates to be considered a licensed automobile professional. You can decide to also specialize in certain aspects such as which types of cars do you want to focus on after finishing your automobile curriculum.

I have finished my level 3 diploma in engineering. The best part of ASTI was the workshop because it gave me a clear understanding of building, fabrication or welding and many more, rather than theory.
