Outlook

Growth for this occupation will be slow, however, there will be plenty of job opportunities. Cars have better sensor and safety equipment so there may be fewer accidents. Cars also have more complex parts and equipment that are expensive to repair or replace. Thus, insurance companies sometimes choose not to fix heavily-damaged vehicles.

Most openings will occur as people retire or leave this occupation. Job prospects will be very good for people with formal training and certifications.
