A training program to become an auto mechanic may be a 1-year certificate or a 2-year degree program at a community college with courses in engines, electrical systems, automatic transmissions, heating and air systems and state inspection regulations. Automotive repair technicians may earn certification from the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) by passing an examination and documenting 2 years of work experience in the field.
