Boost your shop's efficiency and get faster curing, ceramic coating and vinyl wrap application with industry-preferred Infratech curing systems. 💡 Our SR-Spot short wave system is a favorite of 30-year auto industry veteran Jeff Jeppesen at @classycarsdetailing because of its small size, flexibility, efficient heating capabilities, and fast finish dry times.

This is out of the nearly 750,000 automotive service technicians and mechanics employed in the occupation. Now some training programs are trying to see if there’s an opportunity to propel more women into the auto repair field.
Jacqueline Nanney, a senior at Maplewood High School in Nashville, Tennessee, is one of three young women participating in the Bridgestone-sponsored Maplewood High School automotive training program. She said she’s motivated to show that women are strong enough to be mechanics.
“You don’t see a lot of women working on cars physically. This is why I picked it,” Nanney said. “Some people have their own opinion on why some women shouldn’t work on cars.”
Chuck Bowles, a region manager at Bridgestone automotive company, said while it’s been challenging to recruit more women into the industry, becoming a mechanic is an opportunity for them to earn good money — especially if they have families.
On average, he said, entry-level workers at Bridgestone can start at about $15 per hour. On the high end, he said, employees can bring in $100,000 annually. This is on top of accumulating paid leave, maternity time and vacation days.
But still, even for the women who do work in the auto field, many aren’t working on cars.
“If you look around the dealerships, you’ll see women, but you’ll see them doing the service writing part,” said TJ Williams, Maplewood’s auto instructor. “There are occasions where you’ll see a few women actually in the shop doing work.”
Williams, who’s been a mechanic for 40 years, said she hopes the training program will help change that.
@giuseppesgarage idea for opening a shop and launching his platform was inspired by kids his own age. "It was all his idea," his mom Rachel says. "He said "Mommy, I go on YouTube and there's nothing for me to watch, just little kids opening toys. There's nothing about cars. Can I do a YouTube channel?", and that's how it started."
