Job Description for Auto Body Repair Technician

An auto body repair technician is the person who evaluates auto body damage and performs the repairs necessary to bring the vehicle back to normal functioning status. This technician works within an automotive garage. Each automotive garage is different. Some have the amenities of a typical office, whereas others do not have heat or air conditioning. An auto body repair technician must be understanding of the environment. The hours worked are in accordance with the garage itself, and many persons in this profession will work 5 or 6 day work weeks, typically daytime shifts. An auto body repair technician is not always required to have attained formal education in their field. However, more companies are requiring training from a trade school or technical school (with courses in electronics, math, etc.) and training in hands-on work. Continuing education is often required, as this is a growing and evolving field.
