A repairer is a skilled worker who diagnoses simple and complex automobile issues and performs services to fix them.
Being a repairer is challenging because of the technical nature of the job. Their primary tasks include inspection of damaged automobiles, reviewing damage reports, and evaluating repair cost estimates. They sometimes need to get dirty due to the power tools and equipment. The nature and place of their work pose risks of sustaining an injury.
A repairer usually follows a regular 9-to-5 work schedule but adjusts it to longer hours if necessary. They typically find employment with auto shops, automotive dealers and manufacturers, and transport companies. They need to learn and improve their computers and technology skills since modern automobiles have high-tech and more advanced features.
Pursuing this career requires at least a high school diploma. Companies also consider candidates who have completed vocational and voluntary certification programs.
