The qualifications to become a mobile mechanic are relatively similar to a regular mechanic position. Most employers require a high school diploma, and many require a vocational certificate or an associate degree in auto mechanics. Some employers provide on-the-job training from more experienced technicians. Interest in automobiles, as well as mechanical skills and strong communication abilities are important for this career. You are interacting directly with the public more as a mobile mechanic so it’s important to be experienced in customer service. This job requires frequent traveling from one job to another, and you often work outside along the roads and interstates.
