"I want to achieve Master Tech, and open up my own shop. "
Most dealerships will want you to be fully geared up with tools and ready to go to work with a wrench in each hand working on two or three lifts at a time. Be prepared to work fast, hard, and under pressure, for not a lot of money. You'll need to learn how to deal with the flat-rate system and work more efficiently, but still maintain your integrity and honesty. If you cut the wrong corner, are not focused on your work, or just get lazy you may injure or kill someone that has placed their trust in you.
Learn that and you're well on your way to becoming a basic, entry level technician. Master tech, of course, takes a little more knowledge. Good luck!
