Advanced mechanics in Reading have a number of responsibilities including fixing cars per manufacturer standards by completing services such as diagnostics and exhaust repairs, as well as brake checks and A/C recharges.

A valid driver’s license combined with the ability to test drive clients’ cars is a must-have. You will also need excellent reading, writing, math, and communication skills. An outstanding application will also show you’re A.S.E. certified in at least five of A1-A8 (L1 counts, too).
