Learn About Automotive Basics

Wicked Wrench Co. will be offering free automotive "basics" classes to the community throughout the year. this will be around a 90 minute class teaching anyone who wants to learn about basics of their vehicle. (the time will depend on how many people are attending the class and addressing questions)

Our instructor, jaime hjelm, is one of the owners of Wicked Wrench Co. and also a female mechanic. 

Teen drivers would benefit from this class by learning how to change a tire, check oil properly, know when you need brakes, what happens when you need a tow, and "what to do if" arises. Jaime will explain safety with changing tires, How to check fluids and add if necessary, and different mechanical issues in different SITUATIONS that may arise with your vehicle and how to handle them.

any person of any age is welcome to attend not just teens.

Please check back frequently to see the future dates/times for these classes. 

Wicked wrench co. welcomes GIRL scout and boy scout troops to earn their auto care badges.

THIS class is free, it is an informational class. this class is not teaching how to “fix” cars, but learning the basics of your vehicle.

There is limited availability. The sign up will close on the website once we reach capacity. we must have at least 5 people in ATTENDANCE for a class- we will send a reminder a few days ahead of time; too many CANCELLATIONS will cancel a class.
