Top Tips

Tips to Find an Automotive Tech School in Illinois

  • Get recommendations from students present and past. The admissions department should be able to put you in touch with some students to talk to.
  • Make sure you research all grants, scholarships and federal assistance available to you. A quality school in Illinois will have a finance department which can help you afford the education you desire.
  • Ask what each schools placement rate is and if those jobs are in Illinois (do you want to move?). Good connections with the job market can help you land a job after graduation. Many times local dealerships will partner with automotive training schools to get the best candidates working in their shops.
  • Make sure you take into account supplies and tools you may need in your course work. Does the school offer discounts on tools, or will they be provided to you?
