I think you will find for the most part the techs come in with some level of skill from one of the trade schools like MMI

I spent two years in school 1973/74 and had to do a LOT of power washing before i got to turn many wrenchs

At yard X for example they will bring in a Yamaha Tech to service a customers outboards as there so special its tough for them to have trained staff on all brands

At least in NY the grunt work is done in large part by a crew of ESL workers

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
