The result is an annual shortage of 39,000 trained technicians, in a nation that employs about 317,000 service technicians, about 19 per car dealership, according to NADA.

 

“Auto technicians today are making well into six figures,” Willard said. “There is a huge market for auto technician's right here in our backyard. People just aren’t getting into the field, and it isn’t just a Mercedes Benz problem.”
