Lakeland Advanced Auto Technician Job Description
So, what do auto technicians in Lakeland do? As an advanced auto and tire technician at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you can expect your days to be filled with all things car-related, from test driving and repairing vehicles to explaining technical repairs to non-mechanical clients.
Job responsibilities for advanced technicians in Lakeland also include troubleshooting and repairing cars to manufacturer guidelines by performing services such as fuel ignition and electrical repairs, as well as brake checks and A/C recharges. Advanced mechanics also mentor their less experienced teammates, assisting them with hands-on tasks such as tire maintenance and part installations.

Requirements for Advanced Technicians in Lakeland
Wondering if you qualify for a Lakeland advanced technician position with Firestone Complete Auto Care? You must have five or more years of experience working on cars and proof of completion of a Vocational-Technical program in the automotive field. Having a valid driver’s license at all times, combined with the ability to test drive clients’ cars is a must. You will also need excellent reading, writing, math, and communication skills. An ideal candidate is also A.S.E. certified in at least five of A1-A8 (L1 counts toward the five, too).
