The popularity of motorcycles has increased dramatically in recent years. Motorcycles are used by a wide variety of drivers for commuting, weekend touring, and racing. With the increasing cost of gasoline many people are choosing to drive a motorcycle due to the fuel efficiency. Based on this popularity there is an increased need for qualified motorcycle/powersports mechanics and technicians. This career field is responsible for diagnosing, maintaining, repairing, and overhauling motorcycles. Many also repair other types of small engine equipment including mopeds, dirt bikes, and all-terrain vehicles. In addition to diagnosing, repairing, and maintaining motorcycle engines, students may work on transmissions, brakes, exhaust and ignition systems, and make minor repairs to damaged sections of the motorcycle's body. Students in the program will also be exposed to engines related to residential and commercial property maintenance. Skills learned in this program can lead graduates to positions as technicians, assemblers, service managers, parts managers, or racing pit crew members. Graduates may pursue their interests in owning their own motorcycle/powersports maintenance and repair business. witcc112
