You were the kid who had the coolest collection of toy cars on the block… the one who built those terrific car models. You knew you wanted to work under the hood back when you were still learning to speak in complete sentences.

Maybe you took a couple auto shop classes in high school, or maybe you dove right into the deep end of the pool, attending auto shop classes at the local trade school or community college.

Unlike years ago, today’s transmission installer does a lot more than just install transmissions. That’s because today’s transmissions aren’t a separate entity; they’re inexorably linked to the rest of the car. So a transmission installer has to become versed in a wide range of disciplines, including performance diagnosis, computer system analysis, engine repair, and much, much more.

And that’s just the beginning, because, as a Cottman center transmission installer, you’re at the forefront of the most technically demanding class of auto repair: the automatic transmission.

And it doesn’t have to end there: This can be your first step on the path to a position in management as a Cottman center manager, or even as your own boss as a Cottman franchise owner.
