If you would like to become a mechanic or you are already a mechanic but are looking to expand your knowledge and skill set, you may consider getting dealership certified. Doing so can only open up additional job opportunities and show employers that you have the desire and the skills they are looking for. Below we will discuss how you can become certified to work on Kia vehicles. If you are an automotive mechanic who wants to improve and gain the skills and certifications that Kia dealerships, other service centers, and automotive technician jobs in general are searching for, you might consider getting Kia dealership certified.

What Is the Easiest Path to Becoming Kia Certified?

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

You will get additional training in:

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

Where Can I Find a School?

Kia 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 Kia training are located in Korea; however, Kia launched Kia University, which provides online training for technicians and salespersons. Kia University offers several technical videos and tutorials that you may view once you are enrolled.

If you are unsure about whether school is a good choice for you, you might want to contact one of the accredited Kia training schools and talk to someone about your goals for the future. If you are already working at a Kia dealership or your business maintains a fleet of Kia vehicles, you can get Kia dealership certified with Kia Fleet Technical Training. Kia 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 Kia program, you will take courses in:

  • Engine repair and maintenance
  • Electrical advance
  • Restraints
  • Brake system
  • Maintenance
  • Drive Train/Transmission
  • Electrical fundamentals
  • Air conditioning
  • Fuel and emissions basics
  • Steering and Suspension

There are several reasons for becoming a certified Kia technician. Maybe your family has driven a Kia for several years and you would like to learn more about their specifics. Maybe you have always enjoyed their products. Or maybe you want to become more skilled as a technician and you know that additional training would help you achieve that goal. Whichever path you choose, becoming a Kia certified technician will most likely provide more benefits than drawbacks. Adding on to your list of skill sets can only give you an edge on your competition.

Chevrolet Equinox - Brake Pads Replacement (Rear) - Niles, Illinois
Rigo was great! He got there early, finished the job early, left everything clean. He changed my rear pads and rotors. The original quoted time was 90 minutes, he was done in about 60. He knows what he is doing and I am recommending him to all my friends and coworkers.

Rigo is a maverick hands down. Don’t take your car for work elsewhere. Especially great at Mercedes—this guy knows his profession! I will be using him for everything related to my car going forward.
