HOW MUCH MONEY CAN I EARN?

     Your earning capacity depends always upon how much you know of definite and specific things.  The man who knows a little of everything and not much of anything in particular cannot hope for much return for his work and time.  It is the trained man who is in demand--trained definitely and specifically to do things in the right way and in the shortest possible time -- whose knowledge of his business is thorough and whose training makes him adept in doing his work, that is the man who is sought after and who gets the high  pay.
     The trained motor mechanic stands in the same relation to the motor industry, as the doctor stands in medicine and the lawyer in the law business -- the greatest rewards are to those who know thoroughly what to do at the right time and in the right way.
     The course of training in this school will train you thoroughly in all branches of the automobile, truck and tractor industry, including the following:

GARAGE MANAGER

     Perhaps in your home town there is need for a good garage.  Frequently men with money are waiting to open such a place provided they can secure a competent man to take charge.  My course trains you to hold this position.  The pay is large and frequently carries commissions on the sale of cars and supplies.  The pay averages $75.00 to $250.00 per month.

SALESMAN

     Big companies are constantly on the lookout for good automobile salesmen.  He must know all about cars, how to operate them, how to make quick adjustments, etc.  pay runs from $100.00 to $350.00 per month.

DEMONSTRATOR

     The automobile sales agencies want and will pay big wages for a good demonstrator.  His work is to "show off" the car -- its fine points -- control, etc.  He must be a competent and careful driver.  His pay runs from $90.00 to as high as $300.00 per month, depending on his ability.

STARTING AND LIGHTING EXPERT

     Nearly every inquiry I receive asking for expert automobile men says "he must be good on starting and lighting and electrical work."  The starter expert is in greater demand than almost any other kind of an automobile expert and a man who thoroughly understands this work gets big pay.
     My course in starting and lighting is practical and I train you to hold a position as starter and lighting expert and draw big wages.  The pay runs from $100.00 to $200.00 per month.

WELDING EXPERT

     There is an enormous demand for welding experts.  All down through the oil and gas fields they are employing hundreds of welding experts and their pay runs from $4.00 to as high as $8.00 per day.
     I was the first man to teach oxy-acetylene welding in a practical way and give you actual practice work in all kinds of welding work, pipe cutting, metal cutting, etc.

REPAIRMAN

     Here's the field having the most opportunities for the trained man.  The expert repairman is always in demand.  His work is steady, hours short with good pay for extra time.  The pay runs from $20.00 to $50.00 per week.  We have constant calls for expert repairmen.

VULCANIZING AND TIRE REPAIR

     There is a need in every community for a garage or shop specializing on this work.  The increased cost for tires today is making everyone want to get all the mileage possible.  Necessary investment for a vulcanizing plant is small.  Pays from $75.00 to $250.00 a month income, and in proportion for operators.

EMERGENCY MAN OR "TROUBLE SHOOTER"

     Here is where the real automobile expert shows to best advantage.  At a moment's notice he must grab his tool kit and rush out on the road to a disabled car.  The trouble may be only a puncture, it may be a defective spark plug, or it may be a Big Eight or "Twin Six" piled in the ditch; whatever it is, he must be able to locate the trouble at once and know just what to do.  We train you to do this work.

CHAUFFEUR

     The chauffeur's work is usually light.  He gets from $20.00 to $35.00 per week and generally has board and clothing furnished.  He is expected to keep his car in good condition and make small repairs.  However he is sometimes called upon to make big repairs and must know how to do it.

MOTOR TRUCK DRIVER

     This is well paid work and there is a growing demand for good truck drivers both in the city and country.  He has entire charge and care of his big truck.  He must be able to make repairs, know the rules for driving and handling trucks.  His pay runs from $4.50 per day up.  The increasing use of trucks for heavy hauling creates a constant demand for expert truck drivers.
