“I didn’t know this is what I wanted to do, but now I’ve ended up here, I’m absolutely loving it. I do anything from filter changes to engine changes. We get to do a really broad range of things. Anyone can do it; you just have to have a good work ethic and be willing to learn.” – Bradley Cooper, second-year apprentice.
