Working as an Auto Mechanic in Florida

Florida is a great place to find and attend an auto mechanic school, but it is also a great place to find a career after graduating. The auto industry in Florida is one of the largest in the country and is projected to continue growing. This will likely create a shortage of skilled mechanics that presents opportunities for those with an associates or certificate from a trade school.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the average annual wage for automotive service technicians and mechanics in Florida is $39,410 with the top 10% earning over $62,000 per year. The BLS also tells us that there are over 46,000 total technician and mechanic positions in the state of Florida. This is significantly higher than most of the states in the United States. According to Labor Market Information (LMI), Florida is projected to have a growth rate of 13% in mechanic jobs by 2026, which is double that of the nation as a whole.

One of the great advantages of the mechanic schools in Florida is that they offer a wide variety of degrees and specializations. Attending a school in Florida can earn you a mechanic degree with a specialty in diesel, marine, motorcycle, general automotive and more. When considering what university or trade school to choose, it’s useful to look at salaries for each of these specialty areas specific to the state where you may end up.
