“The auto repair industry is in dire straits, needing 400,000 mechanic positions filled
from 2020-2024, as per Ranken Technical College,” says co-founder of Mechanic
Alliance Foundation, Marvin Ray. “This enormous lack of skilled mechanics is driving
up repair costs, delays, and hurting those who need their cars fixed promptly. This void
is coming from mechanics retiring and business growth.”
“Add to that the face that today’s automobile is not like the automobile your parents
drove,” Marvin continues. “With over 100 ‘computers,’ some approaching 200, these
computers are not like your desktop computer or notebook. Instead, they are
programmable logical controllers complete embedded computers, based on
microcontrollers or microprocessors, and running operating systems. Essentially what
this means is that today’s mechanics are now, more than ever, automotive IT
“To help combat this issue, Mechanic Alliance Foundation provides training, resources,
and education for the betterment of those wanting to come into the automotive repair
industry, and those currently in the industry,” David Swensen, co-founder of the
platform concludes. “We are building a better tomorrow for the automobile repair
industry – today.”
