Automotive Electronics Installers - Preparation

To work as an automotive electronics installer, you typically need to:

  • have a high school diploma or equivalent; and
  • complete moderate-term, on-the-job training.

Education after high school

Some automotive electronics installers complete a formal training program in mobile electronics installation and repair. Professional-technical schools or two-year colleges offer these programs. They grant a certificate or associate degree. In these programs you learn to read schematic drawings, analyze problems, and follow safety procedures.

On-the-job training

Automotive electronics installers typically learn through on-the-job training. This usually lasts up to one year. An experienced worker teaches you the skills needed for the job. You begin as a helper and do basic tasks. As you gain experience you work on more complex tasks.
