If you aspire to be a mechanic or you are already a mechanic but would like to improve and expand your skillset, that Hyundai dealerships, other service centers, and automotive technician jobs in general are searching for, you might consider getting dealership certified. Doing so can only open up more job opportunities and show employers that you possess the desire and the skills they are looking for. Below we will discuss how you can become certified to work on Hyundai vehicles.

How do I become Hyundai certified?

As is true with most car manufacturers, Hyundai requires that you take a series of training courses to become a Hyundai certified technician. These programs are generally two-year Professional Automotive Career Training programs. Here you will learn to maintain, diagnose, and repair Hyundai vehicles. While enrolled in the program, you will encounter fuel and emissions, electrical fundamentals, and how to work on Hyundai engines.

You will get additional training in:

  • Diesel engine performance
  • Maintenance and inspection
  • Electrical systems and electronics
  • Steering and suspension
  • Engine repair
  • Brakes
  • HVAC

Where can I find a school?

Hyundai offers training services throughout the U.S. and even internationally. Make sure that the school is accredited and that you will receive both classroom and hands-on experience. Many of the campuses for Hyundai training are located in Korea; however, in 2012 Hyundai launched their Global e-Campus, which provides online training for salespeople and technicians. While much of the technician training for Hyundai vehicles occurs in Korea, you can search the Internet and find a school close to you that offers certified training courses.

With many training schools, you can choose to take a specific area certificate, or a two-year associate’s degree. The subject area certificate is within that manufacturer’s factory training certifications. Another option is to combine general education courses with the manufacturer’s factory training certifications to earn an Associate’s degree.

If you are unsure about whether school is a good choice for you, you might want to contact one of the accredited Hyundai training schools and talk to someone about your goals for the future. If you are already working at a Hyundai dealership or your business maintains a fleet of Hyundai vehicles, you can get Hyundai dealership certified with Hyundai Fleet Technical Training. Hyundai offers several Fleet Technical Training courses, depending on your fleet and your business’s needs. Courses are taught on-site for your convenience, and can be modified depending on the vehicles you will be maintaining or repairing most often.

Benefits

Most programs offer several benefits, including technical assistance and hands-on learning. In the Hyundai program, you will take classes on:

  • Engine Repair and Maintenance
  • Electrical Advance
  • Electrical Fundamentals
  • Brake System
  • Maintenance
  • Drive Train/Transmission
  • Air Conditioning
  • Fuel and Emissions basics
  • Steering and Suspension
  • Restraints

Maybe you have always enjoyed Hyundai’s products, or your family has driven a Hyundai for several years and you would like to learn more about their specifics. Or maybe you want to become more skilled as a technician. Whichever path you choose, becoming a Hyundai certified technician can only benefit you as a technician.
