Hi there. I have taught automotive technology and I can tell you that you can work while training in most programs. You will find that body repair and automotive repair are two separate programs. The automotive repair program, for the most part, will have about 10 different classes in all. The automotive area and a couple maintenance classes will help you be a well rounded mechanic to do all kinds of repairs. If you also want to do body work then you may have to take a different program.
