Pay all depends on certifications you get. I would highly suggest going for a ASE certification.

I"m a tech up here in Canada for a ford dealership.

Been through a few year college and working towards my red seal (highest certification in Canada) and I love it, pay is awesome if you get the most training you can like said above, there is alot of ford specific "in house" training online and stuff. And I get full benefits and all that.
