How to become a certified mechanic in the European Union (EU)
To become a certified mechanic in the European Union (EU), one must first complete a vocational training program in automotive mechanics. This program typically takes two to three years and includes both classroom instruction and hands-on experience in a garage or workshop. After completing the program, the individual must pass a certification exam administered by a recognized certification body in their country.
In addition to completing the vocational training program and passing the certification exam, there are other requirements that must be met to become a certified mechanic in the EU. These include having a valid driver's license, being able to read and write in the language of the country where the certification is being sought, and having a clean criminal record.
Once certified, mechanics must continue to stay up-to-date with the latest technology and techniques in the field. This may involve attending continuing education courses or workshops, or participating in on-the-job training programs.
