“So, You Want to Become an Auto Technician — What to Expect Your First Day on the Job” — by Paul Grech

Seemingly simple subjects — that are often taken for granted — are addressed with common sense practicality and lessons that form the foundation of any successful technician for today and tomorrow

Danville, Calif.—When Paul Grech first put pen to paper to write his book for entry-level technicians in 1997, it was to help them gain insight into practical knowledge and experience they lacked when they landed on a shop’s doorstep for the first day on the job.

While vehicle technology has advanced and technicians’ skill sets have become more demanding and complex, one thing hasn’t changed since then — the basics. In the pages of “So, You Want to Become an Auto Technician — What to Expect Your First Day on the Job,” Grech explores and teaches those core necessities that can escape classroom teachings today.

Seemingly simple subjects — that are often taken for granted — are addressed with common sense practicality and lessons that form the foundation of any successful technician for today and tomorrow. The book is as relevant as ever.

As a former successful shop owner who has written repair orders in the tens of thousands and trained walk-ons to become top-notch techs, Grech covers a lot of ground in chapters that discuss “Common Entry-Level Mistakes,” “Selecting and Procuring Tools,” “Diagnosing,” “Removing Parts,” and more.

The first chapter, “The Basics,” can be read here.

Grech’s book is available for purchase for $65 (includes tax; shipping is not included), of which $20 of each sale will be contributed to the Automotive Service Councils of California (ASCCA) scholarship fund.

Contact Grech at p_grech@comcast.net for purchase and details.
