I dont know if anyone will care or not but i was trying to get into this traning program that Ford has called the ASSET program and as of today i am in. The way the program works is i go to school for 8 weeks then work at a dealership for 10-12 weeks then i go back to school for another 8 weeks and so on for 2 years then i am a fully trained Ford mechanic. They chose me over 2 other people for the spot at the dealership i am going to work for. I start working monday but my traning doesnt start till august but i am still really excited that i am on my way now! :-]

:) Congrats!! I wish you the best of luck. I can never understand why more of the ´lads´ on this and many other sites, aren´t becoming car mechanics - there is so much knowledge about. Here in England ´private´ mechanics are few and far between: a few years ago you could always get one to come and fix the car ´at home.´ No longer, they all work for garages (workshops?) where car owners have to pay through the nose for overheads, tax etc. Great job to have - people will always need cars!! :-]

EXCELLENT!!! Factory training is great. it lets you know why they did what they did. So you can be the person we come to and say "So what in the hell was Ford smoking when they put these power seatbelts in?" Congrats and I hope you enjoy it. I am sure we will all have a lot of questions for you in the future.
:-D :-D

Lucky us, now there will be Two Ford Factory trained people on this site. I kind of wish I had gone throught the ASSET program instead of the FACT program at UTI, but I think the knowledge I got from my other UTI classes helped me become more well rounded, and not just focused on one specific make. If you need any help let me know. The books we used in FACT are the same as the ones ASSET uses as well I believe. Trust me, pay close attention when they teach you about wiring diagrams. If you have a good teacher he/she will be able to teach you to figure out most problems just by looking at the wiring diagram before you even look at the car. That will save you a ton of time. Anyway, GOOD LUCK and CONGRATULATIONS you won´t regret it.

If that info helped feel free to Donate.

My older brother went through the ASSET program and he loved it a lot. He has been a full time ford tech for about 6 years now, and if I can figure something out I ask him first then the book.

I almost went to a school in Indy called Lincoln Tech. smackdab in the middle of north downtown...it was an 8 hr/5 day a week school. The only problem was i´d be 100 miles from home, with ver little sleep and not a whole lot of money living with 3 other people in a 2 bedroom apartment...the rent would still be roughly 350 bucks. rediculous. I´m glad I didn´t go, yet I still wish I had in some respects...*sigh* I guess there´s always my mid 20s to go back to class. stupid laziness.

James-
You can get a 2 bedroom apartment in downtown Intianapolis for $350? That has to be after rent is split 3 ways, right?

Welcome to the US, Foxy.. those hissy fits are all to common over here. :p
What do you say in the UK instead of ´hissy fit´? (and please, spell it like you say it) :-]
