HERE IS WHERE YOU LEARN TO DETECT AND REPAIR TROUBLE OF ALL KINDS

     When you have gone on and completed the special work in the other departments including lighting and starting, wiring, carburetor work, magnetos, etc., you are given the opportunity to come back to the motor room and review on these subjects by practical work on all these principle types of motors and accessories.
     Needless to say, the cost of maintaining and operating a department of this kind on such an extensive scale is prohibitive to most schools.  This is another advantage of taking the course at the Rahe School,  which is the largest and best equipped in the world.
     The big reason that I use so many illustrations of the actual work as it is done in my school is to make it evident to any man who had mechanical inclinations and a  willingness to learn, that he need have no concern but what he will be able to learn the business here.  Years of experience in doing just this one thing makes sure that when you come to the Rahe School, that you will learn to handle any kind of trouble on any kind of car you will run up against, when you have graduated.
     One of my students wrote me recently that he had landed a good position in a big garage in Texas just because he was able to take a car and fix it up in about
two hours that not a man in the shop had been able to repair.
     He wrote me that the remarkable part of it to him was that thy had not been able to fix it, as he had no difficulty in locating the trouble and of course, knew just what to do.
     I tell you frankly, that much of the success of learning the automobile and traction engine business is due to having the opportunity to get an unlimited amount of practice and work under the direction of expert instructors, on all kinds and types of automobiles, trucks and tractors.
     I think you will appreciate now why it is that educational requirements are of secondary importance in learning this business.  The only successful and practical way to learn the automobile and tractor business is by doing every feature of the work, over and over again, until you are able to recognize and repair any kind of trouble that you meet with.  You should also consider that the Rahe method of practical training is backed by years of experience in teaching men along this one line.  The agricultural colleges and trade schools have demonstrated in recent years the superiority of school trained men under all conditions to the fellows that have just "picked up" their knowledge of the business.
