Considering the prospect of entering an automotive technician job? If so, the state of Maine is a great place to do it. The average salary for an automotive technician in Maine is almost $38,000, and that’s just the average. There are plenty of mechanic jobs that pay more than this. You’ll also find that Maine has fewer mechanics than it needs, meaning that your skills will always be in demand. With that being said, you need to get started on the right foot to ensure that you earn as much as possible each year.

Invest in yourself with education

Yes, paying for education will cost you money, but it is money well spent. In fact, this is one of the best investments you can make. There are several community colleges and technical schools in Maine that can give you the basic skills and knowledge needed to get started with automotive tech jobs. Just a few of the schools you might consider include the following:

You will earn your certification and build your skills and knowledge with the right course. Some of these courses can be completed in as little as six months, while others last longer and provide greater insight and knowledge. In all instances, education will help you embark on a rewarding career as a mechanic in Maine.

Once you have your certification and have started building your knowledge, it is important to continue. ASE certification is the gold standard in the industry, and if you have your master certificate in any ASE category, you’ll find that you are much more employable, with many different job options. Hirers are much more willing to pay more for a mechanic who has ASE certification, and customers are happier working with an ASE-certified technician.

Dealer certification is another option, as well. While it is only offered to mechanics working for a branded dealership, it can provide you with a great deal of insight and expertise into a specific automaker’s technologies and designs. You can then take that knowledge with you outside the dealership if you so choose, or earn more while working at the dealer.

Supplement your income with work as a mobile mechanic

An automotive technician job can be the gateway to a very rewarding and fulfilling career. With the right education and a little time spent planning ahead, you can find success.

While there are many career options for mechanics, one option you might consider is working with YourMechanic as a mobile mechanic. YourMechanic technicians earn up to $60 an hour and complete all work onsite at the car owner's location. As a mobile mechanic, you control your schedule, set your service area, and serve as your own boss. Learn more and apply.

Jeep Compass - Brake Pads Replacement (Front, Rear) - North Hollywood, California
I made an appointment to have my brake rotors/disc replaced. On the day I scheduled my car services- it ended up raining. Willie checked in, moved my appointment, and continued to communicate through out the day until he was able to come work on my car. He took great car to make the repairs ANNNDDD SAVED ME MONEY by only doing what was necessary (only one of the rotors needed replacing). A blessing.
