Gainful Employment Disclosures



Employment Outlook

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, job opportunities should be very good for technicians with industry certification and formal training in repair and refinishing. Those without any training will face strong competition. The demand for knowledge of specific technologies, materials, and makes/models of cars should create new job opportunities with an expected growth of 19 percent from 2010 to 2020.
