Where can I find good online automotive classes?

I have finished high school and I want to go to college but I also want to take some online automotive classes because I think it can be useful to anyone. It’s also a skill that I want to develop because my father knows a lot about cars and he has shared his knowledge with me. But now I want to learn in a more formal way and free online auto mechanic classes can help me. I’m willing to take a paid internet course if it isn’t too expensive.

The development of your practical skills can definitely be very useful in your everyday life and therefore it should not be underestimated. Improving your practical skills, along with your academic knowledge, is a very positive idea. Besides, taking courses on your areas of interest can guide you to find your vocation before you start your college studies.

It is possible to find courses on the Internet about almost any area of knowledge that you can think of. Of course, we can find automotive classes online. Actually, you can find different types of automotive classes. Since you already have a basic knowledge of this subject, it can be a good idea for you to start by taking short courses.

There are basic courses in the motor field that you can take on the Udemy educational platform (https://www.udemy.com/automotive-101/) usually for less than $10. They are self-paced and include videos, supplemental resources, full lifetime access, access on mobile and TV and a certificate of completion.

You can decide whether to take a course at a beginner level to refresh the knowledge that you already have or take a course at an intermediate level to move forward and study a more specialized content. The free auto mechanic classes online on the Alison platform (https://alison.com/courses/motor) may also interest you.

Alison is an educational platform that offers free courses in different fields of study. If you want to take one of those courses, you will need to create a free account first. You can register with your e-mail address or your social media account. This site offers Certificate courses (average completion time of 2-3 hours), Diploma courses (average completion time of 8-10 hours) and Learning Paths (which are a combination of courses with an average completion time of 18-20 hours).

If you are rather looking for a professional training or if after you take some short courses you want to enhance your knowledge, you can take a longer course on the Internet. This type, of course, is very useful because it can enhance your employability, as well as your career prospects.

Penn Foster Career School offers a complete course in Automotive and Engine Repair (https://www.pennfoster.edu/programs-and-degrees/automotive-and-engine-repair/auto-repair-technician-career-diploma/tuition) in case you want to become an Auto Repair Technician. You can request a copy of your official Penn Foster transcript once you finish your course. Although it is not free, it can be a good investment for your professional career.

I don’t know which educational platform was the first to offer free online auto mechanic classes but I thank those websites for sharing interesting and useful information with everybody. There are good and very complete courses on the internet, but they’re usually very long and expensive. They’re for people who want to be professional auto mechanics. I like taking free courses because they usually get to the point and teach us the most important things that we need to know about each topic. I like that. Of course, we can search for another course if we feel that we need to take our knowledge to the next level. Many courses are divided into levels, so we can choose which level to take. The first course is usually for beginners and the last course is usually for experts. I always take the beginner level to review what I may have forgotten.
