Just wanted to see if I could get some insight from those in the business. I am 19 and currently enrolled in college for Industrial Electrical Systems and HVAC (I have received section 608 and 609 certs) diplomas (not AAS or anything). Since I have started a new job that will allow me to have a very flexible schedule and more free time to study I have been tempted to go back for a two year. The college I go to has an auto course (two year), if I remember right they do certify in Ford and some of the ASE.
Any way long term I’m looking for a business I can either A. ) work for a great company and retire on doing something different every day or B.) go into business for myself and keep up a great amount of returning customers. I live in South Eastern Iowa if that helps any one that knows the trends by location.
On my Dad’s side the history of cars runs a little deep, until things went south they used to own a shop and made good on it (only a one car garage).
