Diesel Mechanic Career Overview

It takes specialized career training to learn the ins and outs of diesel engines. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that "Job opportunities should be good for those who have completed formal postsecondary education and have strong technical skills." After completing their career training, diesel mechanics may go on to pursue national certification, which is recognized as the standard of quality in the field. The median salary, according to the BLS, was about $40,850 in 2010, with higher wages available for mechanics employed by local governments. If bus fleets and trains look like giant toys to you, it's time to consider career training in diesel mechanics.
