To work as a tire repairer and changer, you typically need to:
- have a high school diploma or equivalent; and
- complete short-term, on-the-job training.
Education after high school
No formal training is required beyond high school. Some professional-technical schools offer training in tire repair as part of an auto mechanics program.
Most tire repairers learn their skills on the job from an experienced tire repairer. While training, you start with simple tasks and then take on more responsibility as you get experience. Training usually lasts up to one month.
