Employment of automotive body repairers is expected to grow through the year 2014. Demand for qualified body repairers will increase as the number of motor vehicles in operation continues to grow in line with the Nation’s population. The need to replace experienced repairers who transfer to other occupations or who retire or stop working for other reasons will account for the majority of job openings. Opportunities will be best for persons with formal training in automotive body repair and refinishing. For additional information, visit the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics.
