Achieving the highest level of technical expertise is a process; there are no shortcuts. While formal training programs can be important, on-the-job experience and a general mechanical interest and ability are critical. Most dealerships use some form of a tiered system as outlined below:

D-Level Tech

Entry-level, requiring little or no prior knowledge, skill or experience.

Tasks may include changing oil, rotating tires, lube work and other basic maintenance.

As an “apprentice,” will be paired with an A- or B-level technician for training and guidance.

You will learn the processes of that shop, including workflow and have opportunities to learn skills that will prepare you for the next levels.

C-Level Tech

Performs general maintenance and most repairs. Is in the process of completing training and certifications.

B-Level Tech

Has mastered most vehicle systems and is able to accurately diagnose and repair them.

Begins to train and mentor C- and D-level techs.

A-Level Tech

Has mastered all vehicle systems and has supervisory, leadership, mentoring and communication skills or potential.

An ability to work well with customers is essential.

May specialize in a certain system, such as transmissions.


Local dealerships employ more than 319,000 service technicians nationwide, who make an average of $61,067 plus benefits. Learn about automotive training programs near you.
