Fleet Maintenance Technicians

Education and Training Requirements

High School

In addition to automotive repair and shop classes, high school students should also take computer science courses because most vehicles now have complex electronics. Technicians use software to diagnose and fix issues and use databases to record their work, track inventory, and perform other tasks. Speech classes will be useful because technicians need to be good communicators to work effectively with members of their teams and managers. Mathematics courses will come in handy because technicians make numerous computations in the course of their workdays, and some may need to oversee budgets and parts and tool inventories.
