Analyzing TechForce Foundation’s 2023 Technician Report
Have we reached a turning point in the technician shortage? The TechForce Foundation’s 2023 Tech Supply and Demand Report marks a significant uptick in postsecondary completions in automotive, collision, diesel, and aviation sectors for the first time in a decade! This trend is a hopeful way to address the long-standing technician shortage in the transportation industry.
On-the-job (OTJ) training and mentoring are vital for the long-term success of new technicians in the automotive industry. This hands-on approach provides practical experience and real-world skills that can’t all be taught in a classroom. Mentoring, in particular, plays a critical role in this learning process. Experienced mentors offer guidance, share valuable insights, and provide feedback, helping new technicians navigate complex technical challenges and industry nuances. This personalized learning fosters confidence and competence, ensuring new technicians are well-equipped to handle the evolving demands of the automotive field and contribute effectively to their workplaces from the outset.
