Auto Mechanic Schools in Alaska

Although there are only three different vocational schools in Alaska to choose from, two of these universities (UAA and UAS) have multiple campuses all across the Alaskan range. This can help if you are not sure where you want to live, making it easier to transfer between schools or if you just need somewhere close to home, they should be able to provide that. If you are extremely interested in everything sea-related, UAS is probably the school for you as they specialize in marine transportation which will allow you to work on any automobile that is built for the waves. The average tuition cost for each of these schools after students apply aid is about $10,500, if you are looking for extra aid don’t forget to apply for our scholarship.

Working as an Auto Mechanic in Alaska

Once you are out of school with your degrees and certificates you can make a good living working in this industry. This is partly because of the extremely high cost of living in Alaska, but also because of high demand as there are not many people going into Alaska to work in this space. With the highest average wage for auto mechanics in the United States and such amazing landscape and scenery, Alaska is the place to go if you love working on automobiles and if you want to explore some of the most exotic landscapes in the world.
