Every vehicle must be inspected to ensure the safety of its driver, passenger, course workers and guests. This is yet another of those “critical” jobs. You don’t need to be a licensed mechanic, or even very handy with a wrench. You just need to have a keen eye and know what to look (and feel) for. If you are selected for this position and haven’t done it before, we’ll be sure to give you some training.
