I went to WyoTech and then to the Mercedes ELITE program after that. I've been a tech for about 2.5 years now and make around $50,000 a year. It depends a lot on where you work and how productive your shop is. Some of the older guys in my shop make over $100,000 a year. But I work in Beverly Hills so there's never really a shortage of work. If you have any more questions feel free to ask. :smile:

If your only concern is how much money you'll make you're starting off all wrong. Your first thought really should be how can I get steadily good grades to become a first class mechanic ! You get that down pat and good money will come ! Good luck !!

Beverly Hills? Wow you must be busy. The day a Mercedes-Benz production facility isnt needed in cali is the day hell freezes over.

Blindside, I've heard about your dealership. It's huge! We got a couple of Argentinian imports from your shop several yearsa ago. We"ve been using UTI guys lately and most of them that commit to that length od\f schooling are doing really well. The best thing is that UTI's training includes all the updated computer related stuff. Every shop has a few veterans that can diagnose the 70s and 80s cars, but the new cars are changing year to year with their duagnostics, their idiosyncrasies, and their own quirky problems.
If the UTI guys stick with it, MB's training schedule will make them veterans someday too, with all the compensation they earn.
