The mechanic: a figure who, in some way, has always struck the collective imagination. It may seem like a risky comparison, but the aura that surrounds the man able to get by with mechanical means has always been characterized by a certain charm, especially in the male collectivity.
What is certain is that this profession, more than many others, does not allow for improvisations. Mechanics is a rather precise science, with its laws and obligations, but above all dominated by experience.
So mechanics cannot be improvised, you need to know the means and, if until some time ago, a good margin of importance was granted to the ability to get by, today it is no longer the case. The new engines are extremely complex and, in addition to this, the car manufacturers require more and more skills from those who want to boast of the various brands.
So the possibilities, for those wishing to embark on this kind of challenge, are basically two.
The first involves the presence of a solid basic preparation, not separated from a certain amount of talent.
The second, in the absence of the above characteristics, implies excellent entrepreneurial skills and preparation and, at the same time, a certain economic availability.
In other words, you can think of setting up on your own as a real mechanic, opening a small workshop, or setting up one as an entrepreneurial experience, obviously providing it with highly qualified personnel.
In the first case, apart from the usual DIA and the usual ASL permits (pay attention to the required sizes and premises; it is strongly recommended to contact the relevant municipality for the exact information on the required characteristics), what is needed, in addition to preparation it is a lot of patience and good will. It is necessary to be known but, above all, to be identified as a solver of some specific categories of problems.
