Daily Activities

helpers assist mechanics to repair cars and industrial machinery. They also help mechanics who repair electrical and electronic equipment.

Helpers prepare work stations so that mechanics and repairers can do their work. They transfer tools, parts, and supplies to and from work stations. They position vehicles, machinery, and equipment that need to be repaired. For example, they might raise a car on a hydraulic lift.

Working conditions

  • Must be sure their work is exact. Errors could damage equipment or cause safety hazards.
  • Make decisions that affect other workers on a daily basis. They make most decisions without talking to a supervisor first.
  • Set some tasks and goals for the day without talking to a supervisor first. Most of the time, however, they receive directions before beginning a project.
  • Abide by strict weekly deadlines.

Preparation and / or training

Today’s cars often have between 10 and 15 on board computers that operate everything in the vehicle from radios to engines. As a result, service technicians and automotive mechanics have to get specialized training in electronics. In the old days, the dashboard instruments and engine controls were the only components that used electronics. Nowadays, electronics are found in steering systems, brakes, transmissions and other components. There was a time when a specialist handled all the problems in electronics and electrical systems. Since electronics play a huge role in automotives, the service technicians have to be increasingly familiar with the basics to identify an electrical malfunction in a car and then test and replace the components.
