Automotive Technicians Constantly Adapting
The automotive industry is one of the most rapidly changing industries on the planet, save for the technology and computer industries. What this means is that the latest automotive technology is constantly in flux, changing day in and day out. For automotive service technicians and various others that are employed in the wide world of automobiles, this means constantly staying on top of trends and technologies, lest you fall behind and end up obsolete. This means keeping track of what technologies are being implemented in engines, and just generally taking a vested interest in how the industry is changing.
