Perhaps you have been considering auto mechanic school or wondering about technician jobs. You may already know the model of vehicles you are most interested in repairing or servicing, and if the automotive technician job you wish to obtain focuses on Mitsubishi, you have a unique path ahead. When you wish to get Mitsubishi dealership certified, you will not do so through Mitsubishi Motors of North America. Instead, you will need to choose auto mechanic training that works best with your interests and budget.

Mitsubishi Options

You may already know that the most appropriate path to getting one of the many mechanics jobs begins with your high school degree. Whether you complete high school or get a GED, that degree is the first step. You will then have to choose some sort of vocational or technical education program that provides you with basic to advanced certification.

You can often find auto makers, colleges, and training centers that provide you with certificates or even an associate's degree in automotive service technologies. If you want one of the mechanics jobs, you will have to take the appropriate courses. When you are done with your schooling, you will want to also get ASE certified.

The Automotive Service Excellence certificate can be obtained in several areas of specialization:

  • Engine restoration
  • Heating and air conditioning
  • Electrical structures
  • Brake systems
  • Steering

Some of the certification programs can be done "on the job", and employer training is usually going to take a few months to complete.

If you get certified in all eight areas of the ASE training, you are then labeled a Master Mechanic.

Get Mitsubishi Dealership Certified in a Technical Institute

Programs like those through UTI Universal Technical Institute offer students an opportunity to become skilled in repairing and servicing domestic and foreign vehicles of all kinds, including all Mitsubishi models. The training lasts for 51 weeks, and when completed, the schooling counts as one full year of the two years required for full certification as a Master Mechanic.

In this type of training, students have classroom and hands-on experiences that ensure they are adept at:

  • Advanced Diagnostic Systems
  • Automotive Engines & Repair
  • Automotive Power Trains
  • Brakes
  • Climate Control
  • Drivability & Emissions Repair
  • Electronic Technology
  • Power & Performance
  • Professional Service Writing

Using this approach, you can graduate fully prepared to take the ASE exams that are an accepted replacement for that one full year of hands-on training in a Mitsubishi dealership. This would mean that you could complete the training and be a master mechanic within a year.

If you are a current student at a technical institute like UTI, or you’re just considering getting your Mitsubishi dealership certification, it is important to note that this is a unique brand, and your skills will be of particular value to dealerships and service centers alike. Getting basic or master training will bring a rewarding auto mechanic salary that can increase over time, and with further experience or certification.
