Hot career: female motorcycle mechanics in high demand

PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

 One of the hottest new professions out there is appealing to women who are handy with a wrench.

Female motorcycle mechanics are often called "Women Wrenches," and they're in high demand.

On Tuesday's Good Morning Arizona, Heidi Goitia visited the Motorcycle Mechanics Institute to see what makes this job so unique.

Students there learn motorcycle theory, engine troubleshooting and diagnosis, and performance testing on the best brands in the industry.

Students also have the opportunity to learn and practice on ATVs, personal watercraft, snowmobiles and generators. 

MMI's 48- to 102- week training curriculum is designed to work closely with the manufacturers to ensure the training applies directly to the work in the field.
