Mechanics

Anyone know of anywhere in Houston you can get certified as a moto-mechanic?

I know UTI has MMI in Orlando and Phoenix, but Im not in a position to move there, nor do I want to.

So if anyone knows where I can get certified in Houston, I'd appreciate it.


Thanks,

Doyle

apply in a local shop and work your way up. All of our techs are MMI grads except one, and they all get sent to classes throughout the year. It's a continuos learning process, so try to get your foot in the door and start learning!!

What kind of pay does "the bottom" start off at. I mean, I'll work long hours and bust , but I got a wife, a truck, rent, a bike, and a big Pier 1 bill so my wife doesnt feel so bad about my bike :icon_bigg .

I pretty much decided that being still young, and beyond obsessed with bikes....being a bike mechanic would be about the best way for me to be happy.

I appreciate all the help and input,


Doyle

i graduated from uti. for the what i paid to go there. i would say just go to sanjac or hcc i've visited their programs and they do alot more hands on type stuff. i work on heavy machinery day to day like detroit diesels caterpillar and the lot nothing cold have prepared me for the work involved in working on this stuff. we also work on f150s-650s and also gasoline engine and small engines like rail drills weed eaters and the lot of it. first thing is start amassing tools. let me be honest i get stanley form walmart because if i bring it back broke they'll never know i was using it improperly if i was. but i get precision tools from harbor freight (dial calipers micrometers and etc.)
