The automotive industry will always exist.

Rest assured, people will always require cars. The demand for jobs in the automotive industry has been steadily increasing over the years. Don’t be fooled into thinking that an automotive career won’t provide you with a substantial income. In fact, the national average salary for an auto technician is $55,000 per year.

The average cost of vocational school comes out to around $33,000 – for the entire education. This is the average cost of a single year of college. If you need to take out loans to pay for education, you are more than quadrupaling your loan debt and increasing how long it’ll take to pay off.
