I'm 16 years old and I'm a junior in high school and I want to learn a trade because I feel that's where the money is at. I have a passion for Diesel engines and the way they work but Iack knowledge in working on them but I really want to learn it. I have been raised around them and my father has had many and he knows how to work on them along with my grandfather but I haven't learned it yet. What should I do so I can prepare myself so I could do this. I feel that there are many people who have done this and became successful if you can both work on the mothers and do the business so would a business degree be needed so I can run both sides of the trade and business? Please help. Thank you.

Marine mechanics (work on boat motors) make twice what diesel mechanics do. If you're near a major body of water, consider a lateral move into that.

To learn standard engine repair, check out your trade schools, not the colleges. They focus on teaching the physical trades.

1. Try out some local trade schools.
2. You can take business classes, but a business degree likely isn't necessary.

Sounds like you already have some people to train under and maybe even a job as an apprentice when you are ready.

Some of the best diesel techs I know started with military training and got VA benefits for life.

Check to see if your local community college or vo/tech offers appropriate skills training.

if your high school trades class doesn't teach it then you will find a school that does when you finish high school and take their entire course

Common sense, you go to Garages and ask if. they will train you.
That is what most people do instead of asking strangers.
